Mentors include Dr.Robin Price, Paul Moore & Cathal McDonnell.Areas of skills development may include Augmented Reality/ Virtual Reality/ Interactive Media/ Multimedia/ Composition / Sonic Art. We will use pre-existing work from the selected Artists that’s viewership will be altered or enhanced using digital technology.
