Tweak is a new interactive digital art festival happening here in Limerick from the 22nd to the 27th of September. WE (here at the University of Limerick) are hosting a number of free workshops (topics include hacking, circuit bending, digital art, prototyping, vj-ing and robotics) and there are still some spaces left. These workshops are taking place in the Limerick School of Art and Design Monday to Friday 9-5. They feature workshops by speakers such as France Cadet, Digital Slaves, Area10Media Lab and John Bowers to name a few.
There is also a digital art exhibition taking place in Istrabraq Hall in the Limerick City Hall from Tuesday to Friday. This exhibit features work by artists such as Dan Miller (USA), Gregory Shakar (USA) Nigel Power (UK) and Peggy Sylopp (Berlin).
In addition to this we have a number of live electronic performances including a live circuit bending night and a performance by renowned digital composer Trevor Wishart (In association with Soundings – www.soundings.ie)
