Austin Community College students, faculty, and staff are invited to learn how technology and art can be combined to spark ingenuity and innovation at the spring Digital Art + Technology Forum speaker series.
The series features visiting artists/technologists/makers who will discuss how the availability of open-source technology is impacting the creative world. Speakers will present their work, offer tips, and discuss real-world uses of open-source technologies.
