One of our target creative communities for our technology interventions and community engagement activities is the art and tech community in the Pacific Northwest. As such, we helped host “Electric Sky” this summer, as a way to bring together people at the intersection of art and tech.
Shunpike was very interested in what we did, and asked us to present lessons learned at one of their hivemind events, themed “cross-pollination“. Here are the slides of that presentation.

The primary goal of this art and tech weekend campathon was to foster the community of innovators at the intersection of art and technology in the Pacific Northwest who use emerging technologies to open up new domains of creative expression. This event is for artists, technologists, designers, scientists, hackers, makers, and other hybrid creatives who recognize that some of the most inspiring innovations emerge from collaborating across traditional disciplinary boundaries. Through the immersive experience of an artist retreat, structured much like a weekend hackathon, we sought to create an environment where members of this community may find each other, develop trust, collaborate, be inspired, and innovate.
