Blurring Borders between Art, Tech + Policy: Envisioning the Grid's Future

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The worlds of art, technology and policy are often understood as distinct enterprises with their own codes, ethics, and practices. Technologies, however, are not simply artifacts, but dynamic systems entwined with culture and politics. While institutional allegiances and disciplinary investments might obscure this entanglement, the stakes are shared - and they are high. Gathering leaders from the sectors of art, technology and policy who have worked to cross these disciplinary boundaries, this discussion represents the Grid’s commitment to bridge international and intercultural differences between the US and EU. It names their shared stakes and seeks a common language grounded in the efforts of those already working at these intersections. With these alliances, how might we build a more inclusive future? Staging the kinds of interdisciplinary conversation and collaboration that animate the Grid, this panel explores how we might overcome siloed thinking to shape artistic innovation and technological development for the benefit of all.
