Call for Participation - THATCamp College Art Association 2015
http://caa2015thatcamp.org/

The College Art Association is pleased to announce that the third
THATCamp CAA will take place Monday and Tuesday, February 9-10, 2015,
just before the annual CAA Conference. Registration is free, and anyone
may register. We especially encourage artists to attend this year¹s
THATCamp CAA.

THATCamp CAA 2014, associated with College Art Association¹s annual
meeting in Chicago, raised awareness about the new tools and methods
available for research in the visual arts and architecture. We hope a
third THATCamp CAA in 2015 will continue this process by expanding the
community to include new media and digital art, thus embracing a broader
community reflective of CAA¹s membership that will include artists,
designers, scholars, historians, theoreticians, librarians, educators,
and students.

As with all THATCamps, the focus will be on a community-generated set of
proposed topics. Given this year¹s focus on new media and digital art, we
especially encourage proposals from individuals or groups who would like
to demonstrate, as well as discuss ,digital making techniques within the
context of artistic and academic practices.

We hope that THATCamp CAA 2015 will help move the disciplines of art and
art history forward into the digital age by increasing awareness of
existing digital projects, by creating a community of artists and
scholars interested in digital methods, providing hands-on training in
digital tools, and raising awareness of non-traditional career paths for
digitally-minded studio art and art history professionals.

As in 2014, CAA will schedule a THATCamp follow-up session as part of the
formal CAA program that will include a debriefing from THATCamp
participants and organizers. THATCamp CAA narratives and session
responses will also be posted to the CAA web site as post-conference
proceedings.
