Having only visited the Baltic for the first time a couple of months ago, this week I once again found my back on a plane bound for the north. This time my destination was Turku in Finland, for the closing seminar of the Central Baltic INTERREG programme. The big difference this time is that I was to do the whole event digitally, drawing on a tablet as my work appeared magically on a gigantic flatscreen TV to the side of the stage.
I’ve worked digitally at events before but this was to be my first big event where the digital drawing was the main focus. I was a little apprehensive – would the technology work correctly? What if the battery on my tablet failed, or the link to the TV wouldn’t connect? Would I need to resort to paper and markers? My worries were groundless – everything worked as it should, and our client was very happy with the results, which you can see here:
