Collaborations: Humanities, Arts, & Technology

Thanks, Everyone!

Thanks to everyone who helped make the CHAT Festival 2012 possible – presenters and participants alike! It was a fabulous conversation, and one that I hope we’ll all be able to continue. Expect to see the video footage and other documentation of CHAT 2012 linked from this site soon. In the meantime, be sure to follow up on those big ideas and new connections  –  help shape the future of digital arts and humanities. Hope to see you all leading the way at CHAT 2014!- Victoria Szabo, Director, CHAT Festival 2012
