International Disability Film Festival

Sunbeam Media has entered the OskaBright film festival for people with disabilities In Brighton, England.

We entered our film on voting entitled 'Your Power, Your Vote' which was also featured on TV3 during the election campaign.

Fingers crossed we make it through to the final stages of the Festival, which takes place this November, 2011.

Another well done to all the guys who worked on it and made it happen.

A few words from Denise

I like doing OCR courses because I find them easy to do. They are interesting and there are lots of different courses you can do. I like OCR because I like to keep busy and I like using my literacy and computer skills.

I love getting a certificate when I am finished. It makes me feel proud.

When I started going to DCB the staff told me about OCR courses. I decided to give it a try .So far I have completed Information Technology, Arts and Crafts, The Community and Home Management OCR courses.

I talk to my keyworker if I want to do an OCR course. She will give me all the information I need and support me to do it.

Arklow Group Create Great Films Using Magnets

Andrew Manson is a local artist from Arklow who worked with us for six weeks as a part of a postgraduate course for the National College of Art and Design.

Andrew brought his ‘art ambulance’ which he uses as a mobile art studio to our BrÍ Nua centre. Andrew designed a magnet art project which he has used with other community groups. He has different coloured metal backgrounds, each participant chooses pre made magnets and arranges them as an image; this is photographed and turned into a postcard.

Each of the eight students sent their postcards. As a group it was decided that each student would design their own magnet which Andrew suggested could be animated into short films. The result you can see for yourself right here at the following link.... http://www.youtube.com/user/fionaviola1

Perhaps you can get their autographs now they’re published film makers!!

Video:- Snowbeam, Adventures in Wonderland

www.directski.com and Bray Lions Club kindly sponsored a ski trip to Austria for a few of the lads from Sunbeam.

It was a very generous thing to do, you'll agree. It was one of our service-user's dreams for the past 8 years to ski on real snow and it has finally come true!
