  • Digital Citizenship Summit Ireland

    Event Type: Conference

    Digital citizenship is about human connections online. We view digital citizenship as an action, something that we need to practice and do every single day. In today’s networked world, this is our opportunity to put global education into practice to empower others to become changemakers for using tech for good in local, global, digital communities. Digital citizenship promotes the importance of being critical thinkers and solution creators who make a positive impact. In doing so, digital citizenship is about the heart of being human, creating ripples of good, continuously learning side by side and that when we work together, we are better together. Why Attend the DigCit Summit? The DigCit Summit provides the ideal gathering space for national and international Digital Citizenship influencers. The meeting format will be different than the usual conference. We will create conversations about concepts and opportunities with a goal toward cultural change. The Summit will foster cross-sector collaboration around Positive DigCit. The purpose of the additional free events is to involve not only the attendees but also the public/community. Who’s Attending the DigCit Summit? The DigCit Summit gathers stakeholders from all areas to expand their knowledge of all facets of digital citizenship and the necessity of working together with youth. Educators, tech leaders, innovators, students, parents, administrators, government officials, education officials from local, state, and federal levels, media specialists, non-profit organizations, businesses, thought leaders, librarians, youth-advocates, and more will gather together at the DigCit Summit. Every person is vital to the collective. Every person has a unique view and important input into the whole.

  • 'this is not table' - Digital Art Installation

    Event Type: Exhibition

    ‘this is not a table’ by Robin Price Digital Art Installation at The Digital Hub 11 days • 17/04/18 – 28/04/18 (excluding Sunday, 22nd April) • 12pm – 5pm • Free entry Digital Exchange, Crane Street, The Digital Hub, Dublin 8, D08 HKR9. Please email info@thedigitalhub.com if you require further information. Robin Price (1981) is a British artist practicing across a range of disciplines including electronic music, visuals, audience interactivity and creative technology. Price holds an MPhys in Theoretical Physics from the University of Wales, and a PhD in Composition and Creative Practice from the Sonic Arts Research Centre, Belfast. His creative practice began in nightclubs and electronic music, which continue to influence the aesthetics of his work. http://robinprice.net A recurring theme in the artist’s practice is the appropriation and augmentation of existing objects. Robin Price likes to play with people’s ideas of what these objects are and what they could become after a technological intervention. For this piece, Robin Price designed a ping pong table featuring 4000 RGB LEDs under frosted polycarbonate. Each bounce triggers audio-visual effects programmed in code. It was named after a passive aggressive note left in Robin Price’s shared studio space to stop people leaving things on it and as a nod to the surrealist artist, Rene Magritte.
