DICE 2021

Now in its seventh year, the DICE (Design, Innovation, Creativity and Enterprise) Conference, brought to you by the Department of Design and Creative Media and DICE Labs at Letterkenny Institute of Technology, continues to celebrate and showcase the very best of Irish and international practitioners in design, fashion, film, animation, and entrepreneurship, alongside alumni and students of LYIT.

This year there are three strands to the conference, a webinar specifically for Irish and international design educators; an industry event reflecting the prominent role of social media and influencers in marketing your business, and finally the jewel of our conference each year — our main event, showcasing past and present students and industry specialists, reflecting the diversity of disciplines offered by the department.
