This June Massey University – College of Creative Arts (
)in association with CoLab ( http://www.colab.org.nz
)– AUT University
will run the second edition of the Digital Media Workshop 2011.
"I arrived at the CoLab DMW 2010 not really knowing what to expect. Our
team was pretty excited at having been selected but wondering if we'd be
out of our depth. We need not have worried. Laurent and Simon as the
main facilitators were equally excited by the prospect of the weekend
and what it might hold. All of the other teams were also full of
enthusiasm. The demonstrations on mobile digital technology by Laurent
were eye-openers to us and we just wanted to get out there and start
exploring this 'new' media. With back up from the very knowledgeable
technicians we were never out of our depth. My major concern was just
how did all that time pass so quickly."
"I really enjoyed the workshop because it was quite inspirational and
we were supported by artists who were experts in their field and were
able to open up my mind to possibilities that I didn't even knew
existed. I strongly recommend signing up for the 2011 workshop."
