EVENTS & INITIATIVES
Art + Technology Initiative
The Art of Technology.
“The intersection of art & technology has been and continues to emerge as a discipline which has strong roots in our region - industrially, academically and culturally. What we have unearthed here at the Council is just the beginning. In the coming months, we will explore this connection further and continue to forge the path worn by many others before us. The Council is here as a facilitator to serve all of you as we take the region towards its next reinvention.” :: Audrey Russo, President & CEO, Pittsburgh Technology Council
The Art & Technology Initiative was formed in 2008 in an effort to unite and cultivate the creative and technology communities in the Pittsburgh region. By exploring the various intersections of Art and Technology, and creating unprecedented strategic partnerships, the initiative aims to enhance the productivity of both groups, while fostering this nexus to spur regional progression. Founded on the idea that art and technology share the fundamental characteristic of innovation, as well as a synergy at the forefront of cultural innovation, the Initiative and its partners are dedicated to unearthing the possibilities of this leading-edge fusion.
