Supporting the Intersection of Arts + Technology for Public Arts Funders

State arts agencies, regional arts organizations, and local arts councils are in a unique position within the creative ecosystem to cultivate infrastructure supporting the intersection of arts and technology. As organizations across the country begin to understand and support emerging practices rooted in the use of code, computation, and data, the cumulative impact can improve career sustainability for artists and create a solid foundation for the field’s growth— locally, regionally, and nationally. In addition, digital arts practitioners and creative technologists are expanding access for artists and public audiences, as well as advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion in the areas of arts and science. For these reasons, strategic investment from public and private funders, both those already invested in tech-centered arts as well as newcomers to supporting the field, can boost the cultural sector’s capacity to serve artists and the public by supporting arts practices focused on technology as a creative medium.
