ITP is a living community of technologists, theorists, engineers, designers, and artists dedicated to pushing the boundaries of interactivity in the real and digital worlds. Approach the challenges of the information age with a hands-on approach to experimentation, production, and risk-taking in this high-tech funhouse, a creative home not only to its students, but also to the tech industry’s most daring and prolific practitioners.

ITP Camp

ITP Camp is a 4 week crash course/playground for creative and techy people who want to shake things up. Every June, we invite non-student makers, artists, musicians, programmers, fabricators, and creatives of all sorts, to join the ITP community to make stuff, hear speakers on the cutting edge, collaborate with people from diverse disciplines.

Camp activities and events on the afternoons, evenings, and weekends. Some people take the month off and immerse themselves fully in the culture and experience of ITP Camp. Others freelance or work remotely part time while attending sessions in between. And many of our participants maintain day jobs outside of ITP Camp and join us for the evening activities.

The creative charge of ITP Camp comes from the community of participants sharing their ideas, skills, criticisms and passions with each other in small, informal groups. We’re creating a flexible structure, an Un-University, that is responsive and supportive to the group we select. The structure is based on “unconferences” such as foocamp or barcamp, where presentations and discussions form in response to participants’ interests and projects.
