Laura Smith

Sheffield Digital Festival

  • Laura Smith – Speaker
  • 13-17th May 2019 – Ko-Host @ Castle House, Sheffield

Sheffield is running it’s first ever digital festival. Yes I hear you, it is about time and we can’t wait!

The guys at Sheffield Digital have put together the festival to showcase all the great work that is happening here in the maker city. As a result it’s a week of fringe events culminating in the main event on the 17th May at the Ko-Host at Castle House.

Consequently our CEO Laura will be speaking at the main event on 17th on data visualisation (ALAIRA) using augmented and virtual reality. Other speakers will include Joi Polloi talking about digital products for broadcast and the keynote Steve Gibson speaking about his work as an interactive media artist.

Most importantly it’s a free event, with tickets available from the 23rd April. But get in quickly as tickets are only available for the first 150 on the 17th!

During the week there are some great fringe events happening as well. For example Immerse Sheffield is holding a workshop on SparkAR, Facebooks AR kit, which is free to attend. So do take a look as more events are being added daily.

We look forward to seeing you there.
