“It might be surprising to note that a number of tech companies are investing increasingly in artist residency programs. In fact, two of the biggest tech companies in the region — Facebook and Autodesk — maintain active residency programs. For companies without the infrastructure for such endeavors, local art and technology non-profit CODAME offers to pair tech companies with artists for individual projects through their ‘Adopt An Artist’ program.” – Ceci Moss
Learn about their residency experiences, perspectives and projects. See for yourself how they embrace innovation through creativity, play, and collaboration between artists and technologists.
