The Creative Digital Media degree programme at TU Dublin Blanchardstown produces graduates well versed in all aspects of contemporary media technology. Our students finish their degrees by producing final year projects which typically encompass areas such as web design, animation, mobile app development, User Experience (UX) design, game development, film and documentary production, and emerging media technology. Normally our graduating class exhibit their work at the “Kaleidoscope” showcase event which takes place on our campus in Blanchardstown at the end of May.
This year is different. Due to the global pandemic restricting access to physical facilities, our students have completed their final year remotely. For the graduating class of 2021, the Kaleidoscope Showcase event for Creative Digital Media will take place entirely online and will be live-streamed on the CDM Twitch TV platform. Opening on Thursday 20th May 2021 at 5:30pm, visitors are invited to visit twitch.tv/creativedigitalmedia where an opening event will be hosted by staff and students. Following this, the work of the students will be live-streamed in rotation from the same address all day on Friday 21st May.
This opening event will also feature announcements of awards sponsored by our partners at The Digital Hub and the Dept agency. The Digital Hub award was established in 2018 and some of the winning students have exhibited their work their work there. The Dept Innovation Award, established in 2019, highlights innovative use of design or technology, and the successful student is offered mentoring and support at Dept.
Please join us at 5:30pm on Thursday 20th of May to help us celebrate the work of our students and view some of their outstanding work.
