Emerging Artists Program
May 4 and May 9, 2018
Join us at SUM for FREE workshops on Technology in the Arts!
Technology in the arts can provide us with incredible opportunities to take our creations to the next level. However, knowledge on how to use and install equipment can keep us from exploring and achieving the potential of our artistic visions. Workshops are FREE and available for all Queer and Allied Emerging Artists!
