Software for Artists Day (S4AD) is a conference that aims to connect communities of artists, technologists, and activists through talks demonstrating expressive and often contentious relationships with emerging technologies. S4AD is a two-day gathering featuring presentations by Eva Papamargariti, ann haeyoung, LaTurbo Avedon, Francis Tseng, Lauren Huret, Dan Taeyoung and Janus Rose — individuals responding to technological assimilation and ubiquity in ways that underscore it’s duality as a tool for repression and as a space for self-realization. The program will end with sound performances by Sarah Viviana Valdez. A public soapbox session will allow attendees to ask questions or highlight ongoing projects in order to find collaborators and build community. Collectively, we will seek to co-opt, critique, and disassemble a burgeoning digital colonialism through language, sound, and creative projects.

All presentations and activities will take place on the ground floor of Pioneer Works, which is wheelchair accessible. Bathrooms on the ground floor are wheelchair accessible. Real-time captioning in English will be available throughout the scheduled presentations, not during workshops.
