Ireland - Lighting controls expert Artistic Licence has been appointed official technical partner of The Lir National Academy of Dramatic Art at Trinity College Dublin.
The Lir Academy was established in 2011 to provide students with the highest standards of training for careers in the theatre, TV and film industries.
The academy’s director of technical training Barry Conway explains: "I have been very excited about expanding our technical offering in our three-year programme - I am from a lighting background originally. Network control is now such a fundamental component of lighting that Ireland needs to be able to train this to the next generation of techs."
He adds: "Having a company like Artistic licence be on board at the creation of this training module is a really exciting prospect.”
The Lir approached Artistic Licence with a proposal that would enable students to access some of the latest technology on the market following a significant gift of equipment and also benefit from hands-on training with Artistic's new artLynx gateways along with premium DMX distribution products from the company's versaSplit range.
Artistic Licence CEO Wayne Howell comments, "As a company, we have always promoted education and training, so I am delighted with this arrangement. Understanding best practice in the implementation of lighting networks and control distribution is a crucial skill in the modern industry. And of course, it is great for Artistic Licence if people are trained using our gear!"
