What is Techspace?
In Techspace we facilitate young people to critically analyse the media they find themselves in constant contact with; advertising, music videos and social media and provide them a space to create their own digital media. We utilise high class and easy to use technologies as a means for creative expression.
During our programmes we look at photography, music, voice recording, animation, web design, film making/editing and anything else the young people find to interpret their ideas and perspectives into media creation.
What’s the information evening about who is it for?
In this Information Evening we hope to share these tools and techniques with you. To utilise our new Galway Community Techspace to its greatest potential we hope to connect with as many people and community groups as possible and involve you in the coming programmes and Techspace events.
We will introduce you to our facilities, our equipment and technologies and bring you on a journey through time and space in our Techspace programme. We will do taster group activities from the Techspace programme, and we will split into smaller groups and be introduced to the specific technologies available to us; The Wonders of Photoshop, Film Creation/Animation/ Editing and Sound Technologies.
Why are we running it?
Through our Information Evening we are hoping to inspire you to join our Techspace programme as a partner or to volunteer with us for a couple of hours a week helping to facilitate, Techspace for our youth participants, and picking up a thing or two along the way. No experience of technologies needed.
Should you be tempted to join us we will provide Galway Autism Partnership training specific to working with young people on the Autistic Spectrum and training from The Foroige handbook; policies and procedures on working with young people in the Youth Café. Plus loads of great fun and experiences!
