Arts, Participation and Development Exhibition!

We exhibited our projects for the Special Award in Arts, Participation and Development the first weekend in May. The course was developed and run by Mayfield Community Arts, a progressive and innovative community arts centre based in Cork. It was such a pleasure taking part in the course, it was very energising to learn new ways to use art as a medium for social change and to meet so many people with the focus and positivity to pursue that end!

Our own project
dealt with Social Inclusion. We delivered workshops to digital media students in the Digital Hub. We developed the workshop specifically for the students, exploring social inclusion issues alongside story telling and character development techniques.

The workshop is documented on our Flickr account, a resource pack to allow anyone deliver the workshop is available at Check out the course website for info on the other projects.

Below is a print from Tom Doig which was also exhibited as part of a series of work produced within the course. I love it!

New site - Thinksmart Technologies

New client site recently live! This went live just before I left for India, I got a lot of work done that month!

The site was developed for Thinksmart Technologies to replace their existing site. Thinksmart are a Cork software start-up company doing incredibly advanced work in their field. The challenge was to take the wealth of existing, highly complex information and present it in a more digestible way to the lay person.

Check it out here.

Biodiversity Challenge!

So things have been very quite from me on the blogging front the last few weeks, that's because i've been in India! It's been great, hopefully i'll get around to updating my flickr this weekend with photos.

Before I left I was tearing busy with a lot of contract work, here's the Biodiversity Challenge floor game I finished for Global Action Plan just before I took off. I loved this job! It was so much fun. It's being printed 3mx3m, so pretty huge! It'll be used to teach kids about Biodiversity in a fun / informal way. The different squares represent threats and aids to biodiversity.
