Program purpose

The Collaborative Art + Technology Situation (CATS+) is a residency and community program at The Museum of Human Achievement that encourages thoughtful, critical, creative engagement with technology. The CATS+ Residency Program groups cohorts of artists and tech wizards to learn together, make new projects, and share their process. We host collaborations, artist-led workshops, hangouts, public showcases, and a wiki to remove the mystery from tech and make magic together.

CATS+ creates access for underrepresented artists and under-resourced community members to critically incorporate technology and digital media into their practices through one-on-one mentorship, tool access, skill-building workshops, and community. It offers technologists the opportunity to share knowledge and explore artistic, cultural frameworks. CATS offers a bridge between technology and the arts in Austin.
