Art + Tech: How Tech is Disrupting the Art World

This event will delve into how technology is disrupting the art world and creating new pathways for the evolution of art and design.

General Assembly has put together a line up of creative individuals that work in the intersection of art and technology to chat about the way technology is:

  • transforming the way we perceive and define art
  • providing new opportunities for creation and innovation
  • forming disruptive marketplaces, allowing for greater access and distribution
  • shaping the future of the art world
  • + more....

Stick around after for drinks and mingling after with fellow artists, designers, creatives and innovators!
