  • Performance and Technology: Keeping Arts Alive

    by Beth Burns, Robert Matney, Asa Kalama, Alyce Myatt and Conor Roche

    The survival of arts and cultural activities has never been more crucial, nor more in jeopardy. This survival will rely on illustrating relevance and increasing accessibility via digital delivery, including affordable real-time broadcast and methods that support interactivity. We will discuss methods and emerging expertise in scaling works of performing art and culture to the Internet and to the computing platforms that support performance and interaction, as well as methods for integrating new technologies with performance for aesthetic value. Join us as we explore how arts and culture can participate in digital media and emerging technology to reach more people and retain immediacy and value.
