To promote the use of technology in the arts by developing a corps of interactive artist teachers who will share their knowledge and expertise in programming and engineering with Philadelphia artists

Summary: To promote the use of technology in the arts, The Hacktory will develop an intensive tech/art curriculum where local artist-educators working in digital and technical mediums will teach a new corps of fledgling artists. The new artists will gain experience by teaching not only at The Hacktory, but also at local schools, after school programs and other educational organizations. Regular reunions for the artists and original instructors will be planned throughout their term to provide the new corps with support and to trade ideas. A final exhibition will feature their new skills.
