About the Future Creators
The Future Creators is an after-school digital learning programme for young people aged 13-to-16 years old from Dublin 8, established by The Digital Hub in 2011 and delivered with the National College of Art and Design (NCAD) and H2 Learning.
The programme aims to equip young people with a set of digital skills, including animation, coding, social media, digital image and sound manipulation, filmmaking, and robotics. The programme also works to enhance their exposure to STEM subjects and art and to build their confidence, so they may consider pursuing a career related to digital skills. Furthermore, it promotes key 21st Century Skills of teamwork, collaboration, problem solving and communication among the participants.
A unique feature of the programme is on the provision of taster sessions, where young people get to discover new technologies by engaging in small collaborative projects and in an atmosphere of challenge, trust, fun and friendship.
The programme is run during the academic year. Classes take place twice a week for two hours at The Digital Hub campus. Participants are recruited from schools in The Digital Hub’s local community.
