Humanities, Arts & Technology festival seeks planners, projects

This invitation came to Duke CIT, so I’d like share it with the rest of campus.

Collaborations: Humanities, Arts & Technology
a state-wide digital arts and humanities festival
in February 2010

Join us, faculty, staff and graduate students! The UNC Institute for the Arts and Humanities (IAH) will host a series of planning sessions to begin shaping collaborative projects that will be showcased at the CHAT festival. The festival is designed to jump start movement into digital arts and humanities by commissioning work from faculty, staff and graduate students at UNC, Duke University, North Carolina Central University and North Carolina State University. If you’re interested in working on a digital humanities or arts project, come explore the possibilities for collaboration and support.
