For those who find themselves at the intersection of art, technology, and place, CODAsummit has become an essential gathering. As both well-established artists and up-and-comers gather to grow and make connections, attendees, including sponsors like SNA Displays, are enriched after participating.
The 2022 CODAworx Summit was held in Denver, Colorado. The topic this year was “Creative Revolution.”
CODAworx connects artists and other creatives with professionals seeking commissioned artwork. Part of this collaborative mission is the CODAsummit, a community-focused networking opportunity for creative professionals designed to foster learning, inspiration, and personal relationships.
About the Summit
CODAsummit focuses on the exciting ways creative professionals employ art and technology to change the way we experience our environments. The event includes both theoretical and practical information, drawing from internationally renowned artists, technologists, and thought leaders in the art and design worlds. The conference’s highlights include:
- Keynote speeches on themes of interactivity, data visualization, and sensory experiences
- Presentations given by technology and industry, alongside their artist/design collaborators
- Artist showcases that demonstrate how artists leverage the latest technologies
- Case studies and a Commissioners’ Track for public art agencies, architects, art consultants, and developers
CODAworx + SNA Displays
As a leading manufacturer of LED display technology, SNA Displays is delighted to partner with CODAworx to invest in future generations of artists through the Dreams Live Digitally Scholarship program. These scholarships allow selected art students, some who will undoubtedly use LED display technology – the digital canvas – to create and present their art, to attend CODAsummit, and to take a valuable step in their careers.
CODAworx is such an incredible opportunity to engage our friends in the art space, from public art to corporate commissions. We are proud to support the student segment, helping to encourage the next generation of creatives. I left CODAsummit more inspired and energized than ever before, and I’m thankful for our partners, friends and the entire community for their creativity, energy, and passion. – Paul England, director of solutions at SNA Displays.
I was blown away by the amount of support for the student artists. It felt like being welcomed back to an old family gathering. Paul especially made me feel like I was appreciated, respected and provided for, now and in the future. I really hope this program lasts a long time, as I found it very beneficial. Thank you again for this opportunity. It has and will continue to make a large impact on my life. – Brittney Wegener, Master of Fine Arts at Arizona State University
The CODAsummit helped me to understand applications of public-facing design and the works’ relationship to the communities in which they exist. Experiencing the professional and personal relationships built between artists, fabricators and commissioners to create the hyper-real was wonderful and I look forward to maintaining these connections into my professional career. – Mica Lynn Barrett, rising Senior at Scripps College, Digital Media Studies & History
CODAsummit was an enriching experience. Connecting with my fellow student scholarship recipients, hearing powerful presentations, and speaking with others in the field are each elements that will continue to shape who I become, both personally and professionally. Thank you to everyone at CODAworx and SNA Displays for all of your support!! – Kristi Zaragoza, Junior at Metropolitan University
