The only conference focused on the exciting ways creative professionals are using art and technology to change the way we experience our environments.

CODAsummit will include both theoretical and practical information, drawing from internationally-known artists, technologists, and thought-leaders in the art and design worlds:

•  Keynote speakers will present on themes of interactivity, data visualization, and sensory experiences

•  Presentations given by technology and industry, side-by-side with their artist/design collaborators

•  Artist showcases that demonstrate how artists are leveraging the latest technologies

•  Case studies and a Commissioners' Track for public art agencies, architects, art consultants, and developers

Oh, and did we mention the parties?  We invite you to join us in Denver this fall, where the placemaking art community will come together with professionals from cities and communities to network, and to share information and resources.
