Pegbar.ie is a dedicated Animation Networking Organisation. Pegbar started its operaton in late 2008. Since then, they have facilitated a number of talks from celebrated animation artists, film makers and storytellers such as Norton Virgien, Tomm Moore, Eamonn Butler, Bruce Block to name a few. Pegbar has hosted a number of networking events, showcasing animators work, as well as allowing animators to build new relationships and generate possible animation opportunities at the same time.
In 2009, Pegbar set up http://pegbar.ie and started posting Irish Animation based news. Pegbar.ie also conducted and posted a number of interviews with renowned artists such as Joanna Quinn, Stephen Silver and Tom Caulfield. The website also posted links to animation resources, Irish Animation Companies and Artist’s blogs. Through the organisation’s development, Pegbar has co-operated and co-organised with a number of other bodies and events including Meet for Real, Crewger, Enterprise Ireland, Animation Ireland, the Screen Directors Guild of Ireland, Electric Picnic and the Science Gallery. In 2011 Pegbar moved its base of operations into the Media Cube.
Pegbar intends to strengthen their foundations and continue to develop their operations through various opportunities as they look towards the future.
Our Goals are to:
- inspire and innovate animation artists by organising events involving industry professionals, in order for them to share their experiences and knowledge with our audiences.
- act as a resource within Ireland to help bridge the gap between 3rd level education and the animation industry.
- continue our work on children’s art and animation workshops.
