Apologies for the terrible photographs. This event was in a dark theatre in the Foundry in Google's Dublin office. The event was organised by an outreach team withing the engineering community of Google to engage third level engineering students and encourage them to consider working at Google. I learned so much! I learned about things such as "mapreducing" and "Clos topologies" and what and Exabyte is. It is the equivalent information of 1,689,915,020 sheets of a4 paper (of 1s and 0s I think...) Now that I'm writing this (3 months after the event) I'm not so sure. It is A LOT of information. Anyway- the world of Site Reliability Engineering is complex and intriguiing and changing at a rate of...exabytes. Obviously!
I only have a couple of images of this Professional Development Day for adult educators- but it shows the interesting and creative reflection they had on their work. This was organised by NUI Maynooth in collaboration with the Kildare Wicklow ETB.
I was graphic recording at a conference in Nov 2016 on Citizenship Education, organised by the SPHE Network- a voluntary group of teachers and teacher educators who are championing the subject of SPHE (Social Political and Health Education) at post-primary level. The day began with a double keynote, followed by several parallel sessions (for which I enlisted the help of student volunteers) and a closing plenary. It was a day of quick and constant work! Thanks goodness for grey and pink.
This was an incredibly moving and creative event that took place in Glencree Reconciliation Centre near Enniskerry, Co. Wicklow on the 25th June2016. However I was too busy to take photos on the day so I never posted an article about it. Kieran Allen of the Centre kindly sent me these images so I can share them online.
The event brought together artists of all kinds, philosophers and activists to discuss the role of creativity in building peace. Theatre of Witness is a particularly striking project and well worth going to see if you get a chance.
