New Report Alert: NEA releases Regional Trends in Tech as Art Supporting Artists Who Use Technology as a Creative Medium
From NEA: "In June 2021, the National Endowment for the Arts published Tech as Art: Supporting Artists Who Use Digital Technology as a Creative Medium. This report is the culmination of a nearly two-year research study into artists whose practices are rooted in digital technologies. Launched in partnership with the Knight Foundation and Ford Foundation, with research conducted by 8 Bridges Workshop and Dot Connector Studio, the report explores the broad spectrum of tech-centered artistic practice, as well as the networks, career paths, and hubs of activity that support this work."
"This brief summary report highlights a wide-ranging set of near- and long-term action steps aimed at supporting the arts and technology field identified during regional roundtables. Beyond the breadth of topics and types of actions, these suggestions are directed at a variety of potential leaders, from funders to arts service organizations, arts institutions, academic programs, arts and technology hubs, city and state governments, and community organizations. No one entity can do it all."
