The Future of CODAME
Celebrating Humanity and ART+TECH around the world
It is with great excitement and profound gratitude that we share our vision for the future of our beloved organization. CODAME has made significant progress since its inception as a local art and technology community in San Francisco. CODAME has come a long way since its foggy rooftop first ART+TECH Festival in 2010. Today, it has evolved into a movement that thrives at the vibrant crossroads of art and technology worldwide. We warmly invite you to be part of this exciting evolution as we continue to spark innovation through inspiring experiences. This post discusses the strategic pillars shaping CODAME's future in the coming year:
🌎 Expand Internationally
Strengthening Connections around the World through ART+TECH.
In a world where conflicts, divisions, and inequalities often dominate the headlines, we wholeheartedly believe in the incredible ability of art to unite us. Art brings people together regardless of where you're from, your beliefs, or your language.
At CODAME, our core mission has always been connecting people, ideas, and cultures. Our co-founder, Bruno Fonzi, originally from Italy, lived in France, England, Australia, and Germany before moving to San Francisco 14 years ago when CODAME was born. His international perspective has inspired us to take CODAME's worldwide presence to new heights. Bruno is working on an exciting project in Milan, further strengthening our global connections and collaborations.
We are thrilled to announce our commitment to expanding CODAME's footprint outside the US. We aim to forge a stronger connection between the art and tech communities around the globe. CODAME presence in Europe is the starting point to facilitate stronger cross-cultural collaborations, allowing artists, technologists, and innovators from diverse corners of the world to converge, share their unique insights, and collaborate on groundbreaking art and tech projects. This international outreach will enrich our community and advance our mission to explore the boundless energy of collaborations, discoveries, and explorations at the nexus of art and technology.
💜 Focusing on People
Recognizing Our Community, the Artists and Volunteers.
In the era of artificial intelligence and automation, it is crucial to acknowledge that while technology is a potent force, it is the people behind it who shape the course of our world. CODAME has always centered around the exceptional individuals who bring our events and projects to life. From the awe-inspiring artists who craft captivating installations to the devoted volunteers who tirelessly support our initiatives, our community is the lifeblood of CODAME.
In the forthcoming year, our commitment is to place a well-deserved spotlight on the outstanding individuals who embody the essence of CODAME. We will extend our support and offer our artists and volunteers greater recognition. We aspire to empower them to continue to push the boundaries of art and technology. By focusing on people, we can continue nurturing a dynamic, inclusive community that thrives on creativity, collaboration, and innovation.
Our co-founder, Jordan Gray, whose Qigong journey since his certification in 2015 has deeply influenced CODAME's playful and personal approach, exemplifies this ethos. If you are in San Francisco, we encourage you to connect with Jordan and catch a glimpse of this spirit with Jordan's free Qigong sessions at Sue Bierman Park every Saturday at 10:00 a.m.
👾 The ART+TECH Festival
The Essence of Creativity, Innovation, and Humanity around the world.
One of the highlights of the CODAME calendar is our ART+TECH Festival. It has consistently been a beacon of creativity and a platform for art and technology to design unforgettable, inspiring experiences. We are delighted to unveil a new dimension of the ART+TECH Festival in the upcoming year, connecting people around the world.
Our next ART+TECH Festival will not only feature awe-inspiring art installations and cutting-edge tech exhibits but will also serve as a global rendezvous for our community. It will be a space where artists, technologists, and enthusiasts from every corner of the world can come together to celebrate the profound impact of human creativity and the limitless possibilities that await at the intersection of art and technology.
The future of CODAME ART+TECH is bursting with promise and potential. Our commitment to expanding our horizons, celebrating our incredible community members, and hosting groundbreaking events like the ART+TECH Festival remains unwavering.
