CATS+ Summer Workshop Series presents:

The Austin Police Department Decruiting Information Session and Telethon: Making Something Real that Seems Fake with Andie Flores and Sam Lavigne

In this workshop, artists Andie Flores and Sam Lavigne will discuss the process behind their recent work "The APD Decruiting Initiative", a multimedia public service campaign that aims to prevent potential recruits from joining the Austin Police Department, and to convince existing police officers to quit their jobs. After the talk, the artists will lead participants in a telethon to support the project's reward card program. We'll also have materials for participants to make bumper stickers for the campaign. (Style question - link the things that are linked or not?)

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