This year DS7 moves from its usual annual home in the beautiful Welsh town of Aberystwyth, where it has been held for the past 6 years. June 7th 2012 will see this year’s festival at Chapter Arts Centre, Cardiff, Wales, UK. We can’t promise you the beautiful coastal setting of the past six years, but we can guarantee that this year’s festival will continue the tradition - a gathering of a diverse group of people who have an interest in digital storytelling in all its forms. Also, Cardiff is close to motorways, airports and main train stations!
