University of Georgia, Lamar Dodd School of Art

October 23rd-25th, 2015

It all started here.


This one is for all the dreamers. All the movers. All the creators.

We're calling hackers and innovators of all kinds – designers, coders, engineers, developers, modern athletes, gods, etc. – to come with an idea, with a passion, and with a drive to emerge from beneath the surface and create something out of nothing. So here's to you, the digital artist about to take another step, or perhaps your first step, to joining our global community of creators.

Make an impact and Happy Hacking!
