Using computer code as their paintbrush, digital media experts are creating exciting new ways for art and culture to be dynamic and interactive. At the School of the Arts, Media, Performance & Design (AMPD), our ground-breaking achievements in 3D and interactive cinema, mobile media, bioinformatics, sustainable theatre technologies and advanced digital imaging are generating unprecedented student demand and we’re the home of two new Canada Research Chairs in Digital Performance and Interactive Information.
Your gift will help us continue to explore innovative ways of applying changing technology to culture.
