Please RSVP here

Emerging Arts Professionals presents Tech & Art, a workshop part of the EAP 2011 Spring Series. Join us May 25, 2011 at Intersection for the Arts and hear from leading arts organizations in the San Francisco Bay Area about creative ways in which they are applying tech tools in their organizations to make heads turn and leverage better results.  Speakers will present their case studies, and lead small seminar-style workshops on the tools themselves. Attendants will go home inspired and equipped to use technology to empower their own organizations.

Speakers include:

Rachel Allen, Online Community Manager, National Alliance for Media Art and Culture (NAMAC): Rachel will discuss NAMAC’s use of virtual discussion and collaboration tools including CoveritLive, the live blogging platform used in their Open Dialogue series, and All Our Ideas, a social data collection platform developed by Princeton that allows groups to collect and prioritize ideas.

Victoria Gannon, Copy Chief, ArtPractical: Victoria will describe how an article travels from draft to a finished product on the Art Practical website, revealing how a content-focused editorial team can successfully interface with a simple content management system (CMS).

Ian Smith-Heisters, Artist, Developer & EAP Fellow: Ian will present his collaboration with Camille Utterback on the Aurora Organ, an interactive light sculpture that also tracks audience engagement patterns. Ian will show how the data provided by this installation can form the basis for drawing complex conclusions about the piece’s achievement of artistic goals and its impact on its environment.

Tim Svenonius, Producer of Interactive Technologies, SF Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA):
Tim will reveal the critical questions his team considers when producing contextual media such as artist interviews, knowing that the results will be published to web, mobile devices, podcasts, educational centers, and other outlets. He’ll discuss the key production and editorial questions that arise when publishing to multiple channels, with special consideration of the constraints and benefits of mobile.

Moderator: Dan Wolf, Artist, Program Manager of The Hub at the JCCSF & EAP Fellow
