The TechSpace programme, hosted by Camara Ireland, has been appointed as strategic partner by the Adobe Foundation to manage and co-ordinate its Adobe Youth Voices (AYV) program in Ireland. TechSpace will work in partnership with youth services networks and schools to deliver this innovative programme, encouraging young people to engage in creative learning through the use of technology.

The announcements were made at the inaugural TechSpace Creative Tech Festival in Dublin, which was launched by Lord David Puttnam, Ireland’s Digital Champion. The event showcased the stunning work produced by young digital creators (aged 8 to 18) in TechSpace centres around Ireland.  The Adobe Foundation has provided major funding support and also announced Irish teenager Delia Aires as the TechSpace recipient of the Adobe third level education creativity scholarship.
