C4 Atlanta is pleased to announced that we will be partnering with the Office of the Arts at Georgia Tech as we continue our TechsmARTs program.
TechsmARTs was created five years ago as a free, meet-up discussion focused on the intersection of arts and technology. The goal of the partnership is to enhance support of the program, expand its reach into the community and create meaningful conversations about the influence and impact of technology on the arts.
Here’s what the Jessyca Holland, Executive Director of C4 Atlanta, had to say about the partnership:
“This partnership happened very organically. C4 Atlanta has always held the belief that artists and technologists are creative thinkers who have more in common than not. The Office of the Arts values this belief. I am thrilled to be working together with them.”
Jennifer Kimball with the Office of the Arts at Georgia Tech also shares her excitement for this partnership:
“I’m excited to see these two groups join forces to further the dialogue between technology and art. It’s a natural partnership: since its inception, C4 Atlanta has proven itself invaluable within the Atlanta arts community for the business and technology resources it offers. The Office of the Arts is leading the charge to celebrate arts and creativity across the Georgia Tech campus and to further infuse arts into this technology-focused community.”
