What’s been keeping us busy in recent weeks…
We’ve had a number of client events in recent weeks, including yesterday’s launch of the 2009 Annual Report of the Dublin Well Woman Centres, which has been receiving high levels of media coverage for the past few days (to see a report of the launch on yesterday’s lunchtime news on RTÉ 1 Television, click here).
Last week, we organised a conference on ‘How People Live Their Lives in an Intercultural Society’ on behalf of the Irish Committee of the European Cultural Foundation (ECF), at which President Mary McAleese delivered the keynote address. A report was launched at the event, documenting the outcomes and recommendations arising from a two-year-long project, facilitated by DHR Communications, whereby the ECF brought together a cross-section of people – from different cultural backgrounds and living in six different parts of the country – to discuss their experiences of interculturalism.
We’ve also been busy processing the applications for the Comhar Sustainable Development Media Fund over the past couple of weeks. Thirty-one applications were received in total, from journalists and organisations interested in carrying out projects aimed at increasing awareness of sustainability issues. The judging meeting for the Fund will take place over the coming weeks, and all applicants will be notified of the outcomes before the end of July.
Finally, the overall winner of The Digital Hub‘s Best in Show competition was announced last week: congratulations to the team of DCU graduates that won the top prize of €1,000, as well as work placements with Red Diamond Media. Full details of the winning team and the competition overall – which is targeted at up-and-coming digital media creatives – are available here.
