Join us for two weeks exploring the intersections of art, technology, and access!
During Digital Day Camp (DDC), you'll get to work alongside artist-educators and staff, engaging in lectures, hands-on workshops, and creative play around this year’s theme of ACCESS: how does a multiplicity of intersectional, lived experiences such as disability, race, and gender inform, challenge, and invite reimaginings of what digital and physical access can be?
You have the option to choose between two sessions, which will cover the same content and instruction.
Session 1: July 15th - July 26th, 9:30am to 4pm (Mon - Fri)
Session 2: July 29th - August 9th, 9:30am to 4pm (Mon - Fri)
Where: 2 Metrotech @ NYU Tandon / Game Center, Downtown Brooklyn
