Chamber Event details
Tuesday 9 May
Join us on Tuesday 9 May 2017 for the final day of the Abertay Digital Graduate Show for one of our acclaimed Business Breakfasts.
During the morning we will hear from Puny Astronaut, an Abertay University game development studio who are aiming for international commercial success with an innovative title that shuns violence in favour of relaxation. Students from Puny Astronaut will showcase their unique title Glaze, explaining the collaborative design process that saw a multidisciplinary team of programmers, artists, sound designers, and level designers create the world of Glaze.
The event will also act as a launch for applications to phase two of the Cultural Tourism Fund, which has already assisted local projects including Dundee Museum of Transport, Dundee Contemporary Arts and Slurpp.
The Cultural Tourism Fund is intended to support the development of new products and experiences in the city. This could be a new festival, innovative approach to transport, new food and drink offerings or a new tourism trail.
Ryan McLeod of Slurpp, a digital design studio based in Dundee, will give us an insight into his current project. Ryan was one of the first to benefit from the Cultural Tourism Fund earlier this year. The project, in partnership with Sooper Double D, aims to create a GPS audio tour experience that will lead tourists around a number of Dundee’s hidden gems, using a narrative that will be developed by a group of creatives across the city.
Don’t miss out on this fantastic opportunity to network with other Chamber members, Board Directors and members of the Chamber team whilst enjoying the fantastic breakfast on offer from Abertay, hearing from our speakers and taking in a tour of the Graduate Show.
Promising to be a showcase of exciting, innovative and creative work... yes, the Abertay Digital Graduate Show is here! Running from May 5-9 and taking over all five floors of the Abertay University Student Centre, the ADGS is not to be missed.
The ADGS showcases the amazing work of more than 170 final year students. In what is a unique blend of digital art, computer games, cyber security innovation and more, this year marks the BIGGEST EVER Abertay Digital Graduate Show and comes as the University marks two decades of games education. From concept art linked to a device that turns mobile phones into a virtual reality handset, to software that can transmit from space and a chillingly realistic AAA game that sees players escape from a creepy locked room, there's so much to experience.
