Austin Design Week – Integrating Media Arts into the Public Sphere
The City of Austin recognizes the importance of creativity to its vitality, livability, and economic success. A place where small, local businesses thrive, Austin has achieved prominence as a trendsetting global city at the intersection of art, music, film, and digital technology. In 2015, Austin became the first and only U.S. city to receive a City of Media Arts designation from UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization), increasing the international presence of our creative industries and establishing opportunities for joint creative industry development with global partners.
Come learn best practices for launching a global creative practice in art and media, hear successes from international and local new media artists, and discover how you might partner with the City of Austin to aid in your success.
