From the Creative Tech Week website (http://creativetechweek.nyc/)
Creative Tech Week is the premier nexus for creativity and engineering worldwide, in New York City where it belongs. Creative Technology is culture, passion, design, and art with a software-based, electronic and/or data-driven engine. Our mission is to highlight New York City as the top destination in America for Creative Technology, surface the best new developments in the field, and provide a nexus for a global network of creative technologists. We’re collectively showcasing our best commercial, artistic and institutional achievements and creating space for diverse industry professionals to meet and discover the most cutting edge, groundbreaking work being done today. We’re bringing candidates, companies, jobs, job training, tourism, beautification and economic development to the city while providing artists, museums, universities and arts organizations with new audiences and funding opportunities.
Event week locations will consist of four main hubs in Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens, as well as satellite events throughout the five boroughs.
The event week, starting Friday April 29 and running through Sunday May 8, will feature creative technology showcases, public installations, industry talks, art fairs; participatory, interactive and immersive experiences; hackathons, game jams, job fairs, educational workshops, artist forums, studio visits, networking events, institutional tours, expert panels, theatrical performances, concerts, parties & more!
Creative Tech Week kicks off with an exciting 2-day expo, Friday and Saturday April 29-30 2016, at Industry City, Brooklyn.
We’re transforming the ground floor of a converted warehouse building into a experience combining interactive art installations, drone racing, educational resources and the opportunity to learn about businesses in the Creative Technology field. This is your opportunity to meet the entire CTW audience, from consumers, artists, makers and teachers to product entrepreneurs, developers, and company representatives. The Expo takes place a couple days prior to the daily and nightly programming at the Arts, Community & Industry hubs. It is appropriate for all-ages and it is FREE!
Whether you are just learning what Creative Technology is or you have been deeply immersed for decades, we have a wide variety of experiences planned for our expo that will appeal to everyone: immersive experiences, product demos, virtual reality, music remixing, sculpture building, student presentations, corporate promotions, interactive & participatory games, selfie booths, and much more! Jeanne Angel is our Expo Director.
Creative Tech Week’s 200+ Partners will be presenting performances, conferences, events, exhibits, workshops, hackathons and more all across the city.
Participating events are being held across all five boroughs at our partnering locations. See our schedule for a full list of exhibits, shows, demos, workshops and more!
