iDEAS 15 is an international exhibition of Hybrid forms, digital art, design, and new media. The iDEAS 15 exhibition coincides with the annual International Digital Media and Arts Association (iDMAa) conference, to be held on the campus of East Tennessee State University in Johnson City, Tennessee, from November October 21st – 23rd. Opening reception is Wednesday evening, October 21st.
The International Digital Media and Arts Association (iDMAa) was founded in early 2004 by a group of 15 universities. iDMAa is dedicated to serving educators, practitioners, scholars, and organizations with interests in digital media.
Around the world, universities and colleges are creating new programs and departments to teach and conduct research in Digital Media and Digital Arts. These programs are emerging from partnerships of Art, Computer Science, Communications-Radio/TV-Journalism, English, Music, Theater, Film and other disciplines. These programs often don’t fit within the neat and tidy confines of traditional university structures. Thus, their creators and champions often forge interdisciplinary partnerships to create opportunities, attract money, and stimulate explosions of creativity.
