Come see what the future of technology holds for the arts, complete with live music and performances.
In a recent panel, San Francisco’s Artstech contingent explored the power of crowd-funding for art. The discussion drove me to a question: How can we help solve some of the problems of crowd-funding and avoid Kickstarter burnout?
Responsibility for conservation or the decision to choose not to, is a growing question, and rests mostly on the artist.
Tonight’s event will take place at Pivotal Labs near Manhattan’s Union Square starting at 7pm EST and (luck you) it will be livestreamed at artstechmeetup.com.
On Wednesday I attended “Social Media Week Edition: Social Media Art,” the newest in a series of Arts, Culture and Technology Meetups. These meetups, organized by Julia Kaganskiy, global editor for The Creators Project and co-director of Blue Box Gallery, are all about the potential for technology in and out of the art world.
We listed tonight’s #ArtsTech social media art panel in last week’s Art Rx and — as expected — it’s sold out! Over 125 people have RSVPs and the waiting list is 75 people deep. Thankfully the group has decided to livestream the event tonight between 7:30 and 9pm EST.
A year ago, Julia Kaganskiy (aka @juliaxgulia) quietly began the Arts, Culture and Technology group in New York on Meetup.com. It was a simple idea: link up geeks with a love of culture. It may sound obvious in the art capital of the world but Julia was the first person to think it up and follow through.
