Software For Artists Day #8

For the 8th edition of Software For Artist Day S4AD, Pioneer Works is thrilled to partner with the School for Poetic Computation (SFPC) as they celebrate their tenth year anniversary. This year's program, In Poetic Coalition, will address how computation can be an instrument of creative exploration to resist the utilitarian and profit-generating impulses to which it is so often directed, how teaching can best blend a study of technology with the theory that challenges it, and how we can work together to build alternative networks of education where that study can take place. Join us on Saturday, November 18th for a day of learning, unlearning, sharing and community.

Presenters include:

Ayana Zaire Cotton
Che-Wei Wang & Taylor Levy
Kameelah Janan Rasheed
fields harrington
Lynne Yun
Lillian-Yvonne Bertram
Tega Brain
Asha Tamirisa
Rachel Uwa
Romi Ron Morrison
and more to be announced

To coincide with the event, the School for Poetic Computation and Pioneer Works have collaborated to produce the Software For Artist’s Day Book: In Poetic Coalition, a new publication bringing artists, educators and labor organizers together in conversation to challenge existing models for institution-building and explore new possibilities.
