Building a Brighter Future in Tech

New Dates

Unfortunately, due to the snow, the Bangor event, which was scheduled to take place on St. David’s Day (1/3/18) was postponed.  There is now a new date of 25th April

The hugely successful Building a Brighter Future in Tech is returning in 2018 with new events to promote career paths in the tech industry.

Following the initial success of its inaugural event in Techniquest in 2017, the free events run by Codez Academy in partnership with Technocamps and the Welsh Government will be held in Neuadd Reichel, Bangor on 25 April.

During the course of the events, attendees will have the chance to participate in a number of workshops delivered by seasoned tech industry professionals around problem solving, HTML, social media presence and beginning your journey into tech.  It is hoped that these workshops will answer common questions and will help break down barriers for those considering moving into tech roles.

Experience | Place | Story

How can we use playful strategies to create new narratives of place and community?

Fri 23 March 2018  10:30 – 13:30

St. Fagans National Museum of History  Saint Fagans  CF5 6XB

What’s it all about?

A creative morning that delves into ways in which place, experience and story can be explored through digital and analogue technologies. Against the noisy backdrop of investment in VR and AR can we create new dialogues with audiences that arouse the senses, engage the emotions, and that are attuned to the environment.

The event will feature presentations from creative organisations and artists that have produced work at St Fagans National Museum of History.

Who’s it for?

The event is aimed at anyone who is interested in creating digital and/or analogue site-specific projects that connect people, story and place.

The day will be split into two parts:

10.30am -1.30pm
Talks and presentations focusing on exploration and discovery through creative practice. This will feature contributions from St Fagans’ artists in residence, members of the digital team and researchers on immersive media. The morning session will be followed by lunch and networking.

2pm – 4pm [optional]
In the afternoon guests will be invited to take part in St Fagans’ new immersive storytelling experience Traces (Olion) or can attend a games making workshop with yello brick producer Alison John (places for the workshop are limited to the first 20 sign ups).
