Media Rising, an interactive exhibition which brings the little known stories of 1916 to life, will launch at Kerry County Museum on Thursday, May 19th at 7pm. The exhibition will continue until September 2016.
In the exhibition, see history brought into the present day, through the use of new and innovative technology. Explore the lengths that were taken to print the 1916 Proclamation in the days and hours leading up to Easter Monday 1916. Hear the story of the world’s first radio broadcast which was aired by the volunteers of the Rising from the Dublin telegraphy school. Become immersed in what became an iconic moment in time as Padraig Pearse reads the 1916 Proclamation, before your eyes, surprising you with a modern 2016 twist.
The exhibition offers a unique interactive experience for visitors to engage with, and explore history in a new way.
Media Rising is produced by Noel Nash, Liam McElligott, Jenny Plunkett and Aine Brennan, BA (Hons) Design for Interactive Multimedia, Institute of Technology Tralee.
