exhibitions showcasing digital technology in its new project office on
Thomas Street.

During 2003 The Digital Hub will continue to exhibit work that
demonstrates and explores the creative potential of digital technologies
on an ongoing basis. These exhibitions will provide a unique platform
for both emerging and established artists, filmmakers, designers,
programmers, developers, musicians and animators from many diverse
backgrounds to exhibit their work.

architectural, web, interaction and sound design as well as motion
graphics, print media, film, TV graphics, animation, special effects,
commercial production, gaming, advertising and computer programming...
