2015 TechniCulture - A Philly Tech Week Event

The goals of the inaugural TechniCulture event on April 17, 2015, were to deepen relationships between the cultural and tech communities; to encourage and inspire cultural organizations to think more innovatively and entrepreneurially; and to celebrate our region's bourgeoning tech resources.  
The event was part of Philly Tech Week, and kickd off by Youngmoo Kim (Director, Drexel University ExCite Center; Philadelphia Geek Awards 2012 "Scientist of the Year"; member of Apple Distinguished Educator class of 2013). Youngmoo discussed how artistic and technological innovations are inextricably linked and how STEAM education can fuel joint innovation.

Nine TED-like presentations were moderated by Natalie Nixon (Director, Strategic Design MBA, Philadelphia University), and featured partnerships in two categories: Artistic/Curatorial projects and Business Planning. 

The presentations were followed by Q&A and networking. Here are some resources from the event:
