Arts + Tech = Magic

29 Cities, 1 Global Conversation presented in partnership with RISD

For the first time, this June, all 29 CreativeMornings chapters will be hosting their events under one common, unified theme: The Intersection of Arts + Technology , presented in partnership with the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD).

The arts are often seen as a “nice to have,” especially amidst tight budgets. Yet, CreativeMornings believes that it is through mixing arts and design with other disciplines that society can foster the next generation of creative doers and makers.

In an effort to stir up a global conversation, CreativeMornings has partnered with John Maeda, President of RISD and their STEM to STEAM initiative to recognize the magic that bubbles up when Arts and Tech intersect. As part of this special themed month, there will also be a special RISD pop up chapter in Providence, Rhode Island with speaker, Kelly Dobson.

New York hosted Jonathan Harris to kick off the themed month on June 1 for a packed crowd at the Galapagos Art Space in DUMBO.
