OFFSITE Fringe Festival returns for OFFSET Dublin 2018

OFFSITE is back with another jam-packed week of Workshops, Masterclasses, Outdoor Lunctime Talks, Sketchcrawl through the city, Panel Discussions, Book Launch, Exhibitions, Music, Delegate Party and AOI Doodle Jam as part of the official OFFSET Dublin 2018.

Now in its third year, OFFSITE is the perfect perfect opportunity for creatives to thrive: to learn from each other, to share their ideas, to inspire and be inspired by their peers. 

Running Sunday 18th – Saturday 24th March 2018 the majority of events are free and open to public. Make sure to follow us on twitter and our hashtag #Offsite for registration announcements. Registration will open one week before each event starts. First come first serve so stay tuned!

This year we have partnered with Ireland’s leading flexible workspace provider Iconic Offices. Their fantastic new building – The Greenway will act as our Hub for the majority of OFFSITE events to include  “A Picture Book” workshop with NoBrow founder Sam Arthur, Tyeface Workshop with Bruno Maag of Dalton Maag & an Interactive workshop with OFFSET 2018 speaker Joshua Davis. Our friends at IBM return also with an AI Accelerator workshop followed by an evening of panel discussions with practitioners and thought leaders in the industry, and of course…food, music and drinks!

OFFSITE are also very excited to introduce a new series of Lunchtime Talks entitled Playing with Space at the Wood Quay Amphitheatre. Offset, A Playful City & DCC are teaming up to bring together unexpected and cross-cutting perspectives into a conversation about what makes a city play. Playing with Space will lead directly to tangible impact: the insights gathered during the series will feed into A Playful City’s work with Sean Harrington Architects to transform a selection of laneways in Dublin 1 into playful spaces.

OFFSITE just wouldn’t be the same without the return of OFFSKETCH with our pals Steve Simpson & Steve Doogan. Launching the OFFSITE fringe Festival on Sunday 18th, shake of the Paddy’s day hangover with a sketch crawl through the city followed by an exhibition of your work in the agency The Public House

Masterclasses this year come in form of Audio & Colour for moving image with the crew in Windmill Lane. Their specially crafted 4 hour masterclasses will give you deeper insights into the principles of colour grading, it’s power and effect or get an in-depth look at the creative methods and workflows for Audio for Feature Film, Animation & Commercials.
