I am reliably informed by the intermittent mizzle going on outside my window that summer is approaching. As such, it’s nearly time for trans and Urban Arts Academy…
As well as the same range of courses as previous years (in disciplines such as DJing, VJing, Journalism, Photography and Street Art - check out www.transbelfast.com for details), we’ve developed new short courses that will take place on the weekends. So if you’re working for the man all week, or want to check out some of what UAA offers without committing to 1-3 wks, these could be up your street.
For beginners, we have courses in Stand-up Comedy; Garage Band; VJing; Making a Video for Your Band and Alternative Reality Gaming (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alternate_reality_game - just heard about this recently, sounds totally class). For more advanced students, looking to hone their skills, we have a Guitar Masterclass; Ableton Masterclass and Song-writing Masterclass.
Tickets for the weekend courses are £25 and are on sale now. All other Urban Arts Academy and A-kid-emy courses are also on sale and tickets are going pretty quickly. In particular, for Urban Arts Academy - Photography, Street Art and Graphic Design have only a few places left. For A-kid-emy, Digital Animation, Fashion, Rock Music and Urban Dance are all selling fast.
If you’d like to book a place on any of the UAA or weekend courses, contact the Waterfront box office on 028 90334455, or book online [url]http://www.waterfront.co.uk/[/url]
