For the last few years I’ve gotten involved with parts of the arts scene, music scene, and tech scene here around Boston/Cambridge/Somerville. When I arrived here, it was the first year of the Together Festival. Since then, it has expanded from being solely about music, to including technology. At their events I would meet artists I would soon collaborate with, or curate. I would perform, and I’d hear great music.
I’m thrilled to say that this year I’m part of the Together Tech Advisory Board.
Together’s Technology Coordinator, Robby Grodin, has assembled a group of thinkers, visionaries and tech industry pioneers to guide the technology programming, panels and events of this year’s Together Festival, May 13th-19th, 2013.
It is a great opportunity, and I’m already brimming with possible panels and events to throw- mostly seeing this as a window into showcasing artists and makers whose work I’ve found compelling around town. Some panels I’m thinking about now are Public Art and Technology, Interactive Art, and Creative Coding. Events wise, I’ll be doing WHIRL again, and definitely stirring up excitement around a hackathon.
