Making change through creative learning
We teach creative inquiry, critical thinking, and technical expertise to make sense of our world, combat inequalities, and secure progressive social values.
Intensive Certification Programs
Our 12-week intensive certification programs combine theory with hands-on learning to help artists and technologists gain proficiency in tools and frameworks—integrating design, technology, and social impact—to create a more equitable digital future.
Responsible Technology Design Intensive
In this interdisciplinary online intensive course, award-winning critical designer, researcher, and artist Caroline Sinders—along with guest lecturer Sarah Aoun, activist and Vice President of Security at the Open Technology Fund—will lead students in understanding human rights-centered design. Throughout the course, students will ideate and design technology-mediated products with these concepts and principles in mind and examine the use of UX and design tools in activism.
Open Metaverse Intensive
In this brand new 10-week course, students will gain proficiency in the necessary digital creator tools and code frameworks—from blockchains to Blender—in a hands-on interactive learning environment. Complete the course with the ability to design and exhibit original content, create participatory events in the metaverse, and craft your own immersive mixed reality experiences from scratch.
Creative Code Intensive
Our Creative Code Intensive is designed as a 12-week course in creative code and interactive art. From web animation to physical computing and projection mapping, students build a foundation of core techniques through interactive instruction, studio projects, and group critiques, culminating in the exhibition of an interactive artwork in a public showcase.
