ITP, a graduate program located in NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, explores “the imaginative use of communications technologies — how they might augment, improve, and bring delight and art into people’s lives.” ITP is running its second summer camp, a blending of an unconference and artist residency:
Conferences like TED leave people energized, full of ideas and new directions. And then they go home. At ITP Summer Camp, you get the same kind of inspiration, but then have the time to try out some of your ideas, make progress, be part of the creative community and leave with something tangible.
Make some progress this summer. Come to ITP and learn to use the latest tools. For 30 years ITP has been a hub of experimentation in art, media and technology. Once again this June we are inviting non-students, working professionals, to come to ITP on weekends and evenings to make stuff, hear speakers on the cutting edge, collaborate with people from diverse disciplines.
ITP was founded and is grounded in the belief that making is fundamental to thinking. Like any summer camp, the atmosphere is playful, cooperative and collaborative but there’s a serious purpose. We’re looking for people who are seriously motivated… to save the world, their industry, their career or just their sanity by being creative; who are dying to make something or just make sense out of what they are doing.
