Northern Ireland creative talent takes part in South by Southwest digital festival

More than 20 firms from Northern Ireland have travelled to Austin, Texas for the world's biggest showcase for creative digital industries.

Four start-up companies travelling with support from Belfast City Council, and 19 backed by Invest NI, will take part in South by Southwest (SXSW), which starts today.

Deepa Mann-Kler, a producer and artist working in virtual reality, neon, light and paint, was among the Belfast delegation taking part in the visit to the renowned SXSW.

Councillor Guy Spence, who led the City Council delegation, said attending the event was a "key business development initiative" for the council's support of the creative sector.
