The Nerve Centre is a training and production centre working in digital media and supporting creative cultural engagements across Northern Ireland. We seek to support the development of the creative industries in Northern Ireland, provide production and opportunities for digital media practitioners and showcase talent through the Foyle Film Festival and our live performance venue. We also operate the Creative Learning Centre which has a core function to support the development of new curriculum and informal learning opportunities using digital media and promoting digital literacy across Northern Ireland.
