Design Jam Limerick is a one-day design session during which people will team up to tackle an engaging user experience (UX) challenge: how to change Limerick and its media image in the next few years so that we can turn it into Fab City!

The event will take place on Sunday, April 28 2012, starting with 9:30am.
