Artists + Technologists + Creative Professionals = Arts Tech Meetup SF

It’s been pretty crazy (to say the least) but happy to report I attended the first Arts Tech Meetup in San Francisco tonight! The Arts Tech Meetup originated in NYC based on the need for artists, technologists, and creative professionals to connect, re-connect, and forge some symbiotic partnerships. Like anything else, you never know who you’re going to meet or what to expect but I must say, it was an evening filled with business card and knowledge exchange. Meetup organizers: Jaki LevyJenny Ma, and Marc Mayer were friendly and welcoming. Their energy and enthusiasm in connecting the people in the Bay Area arts and tech community is commendable. I’m looking forward to future meetups. If you’re interested in learning more about this meetup, please click on the image above.
