The Art of Collaboration:
Processes Technologies Authorship
Hosted by the Digital Arts and New Media MFA Program
at the new Digital Arts Research Center (DARC), UC Santa Cruz
Thursday October 22, 4:30p-7:30p,
and Friday October 23, 9:30a-7:30p
Join more than twenty scholars, artists, filmmakers, game designers and theorists as they come together to discuss the meanings and cultural aspirations associated with collaboration, including non-hierarchical production, shared authorship, cross-disciplinary and trans-cultural approaches to research. By exploring the complexities of collaboration, this symposium challenges overdependence on intellectual individuality in favor of the non-territorial, collective, dialogic, participatory and relational.
