Launch of MindRising

In February 2016, the NIDL was pleased to support in partnership with the new Institute of Education the launch of MindRising in the Helix on DCU’s Glasnevin campus, with over 120 people in attendance. The aim of the initiative was to commemorate the events of Easter 1916, using the game ‘Minecraft’. A game in which there is no specific story or goal, ‘Minecraft’ encourages the creativity of the player, and allows it to solely shape the story being told. More information is available from the MindRising website and the press release issues by DCU.
