Digital women show off their stuff

Posted by on October 1, 2007 10:07 AM | 

Last week we held a showcase event for the Digital Women’s Network (DWN) – a member-led organisation for women who work and play in the digital industry. It was a great evening, and a real eye-opener; the women are a passionate and talented bunch who really put their heart and soul into their work.

Among the impressive presenters was Lyn Hagan who is ambitiously aiming to put art on Mars – what is fascinating about this is Lyn’s sheer determination to make this unlikely event happen, and she’s on schedule for take off in 2013.

Ellie Lands, a talented animator who has just received a fellowship with Digital City, wowed the crowd with an animation about the Berlin Wall and the perceived way of life for either side.

Vi Chong is another inspirational female using digital technology to make something special. She’s a VJ – a video jockey – so instead of mixing music she mixes video footage, to stunning effect. And it’s not pre-meditated at all; everything is mixed live in front of your eyes.

We’re really keen to get everyone digitally playing and working and are planning to run some free workshops through the autumn to help women in the region develop their skills.

These are some of the topics we’re thinking about running:

Getting a website
Specification, pricing, finding a supplier, receiving support

Pure technology
Video clip and audio use, social networking websites

Art of self-promotion
Confidence building, professional image, selling skills

DVD Showreels
How to author, tricks and tips, keeping them updated

Open your creative mind
How to be, and express, creativity to others

Work in community sector
What it is, how to access it, success stories

Starting a business
How, why, when and what for

If you are interested in any of these topics please get in touch; call Suzy Jackson on 0191 487 2002.
