What is CongRegation?

Congregation or #cong16 is a one day ‘un-conference’ style digital media and technology festival with a range of events taking place in Cong, Co Mayo from Friday 25th to Sunday 27th November 2016.

The festival is centred around the Saturday unconference focused around the theme of ‘The Future’ against the backdrop of a rich and deep past heritage.  Friday’s activities will focus on ArchTech or technolgies based around storytelling of the past while Sunday will see guided tours of ancient monuments, follies, standing stones and historic battle scenes.

This is the fourth year of the event with over 120 experts from all over Ireland and overseas expected.  

The call for entries is now open.  We only need a one line description and a short synopsis to reserve your place.
