It’s back again! Applications are now open for ITP Camp 2017 - ITP’s annual summer camp for grown ups.
ITP Camp is like the ITP graduate program put in the blender and smooshed into a month. It is ITP’s test kitchen, its R&D arm, its back of the napkin. It’s the place where we encourage you, our faculty, former students, colleagues, and community to experiment, challenge, and play. For 35 years ITP has been a hub of experimentation in art, media and technology. ITP Camp is where ITP tries the newest and edgiest on for size.
Beyond it being an opportunity to attend neat tech workshops or play with new toys, ITP Camp offers time and space for people of diverse backgrounds to come together, share ideas and skills, engage in critical discourse, and make things happen. This year we are particularly interested in what YOU want to make of it. Once accepted we will be putting campers in touch with each other sooner than usual so there is more time to start scheming about what can be accomplished in June.
Here’s the info for this year:
DATES: Friday, June 2nd - Thursday, June 29th
FEES: $1300 for the month - Same price as last year! Discounts available for Early Birds (pay by April 1), ITP Alumni, and ITP Camp Alumni.
Because of its experimental structure, the content of camp changes every year. We don’t know what 2017 will bring but here are some examples of sessions from last year:
Bodies in the Browser
Intro to Unity 3D for Non Gamers
Building Kinetic Sculptures
A Brief History of Tech, Sex and Fashion
Sea of Commodities: Making in China
3D Paper Fab
Tools for Impossible Ideas: Approaching Civic Freedom through Public Art
Open Source Cellular Networks
Creative Text Manipulation with Python
Zap: Understand electricity better by generating it
Cyberpunk and Afrofuturism in the 21st century
A Brief Introduction to Drone Journalism
Open Video Collective: Hacking the Election
Soft Robotics for Space Applications
For those who want to step up and help to coordinate and activate the ITP Camp community, we will be continuing on with “The Instigators” fellowship program. Details can be found here: http://itp.nyu.edu/camp2017/dates
Those who wished to be considered as Instigators must apply by Friday, March 17, 2017. Other applications will be accepted on a rolling basis so long as spots are still available. Apply early to make sure you get a spot! http://itp.nyu.edu/camp2017/apply
