GA/GI Pittsburgh's First Arts and Technology Festival

"It's an event where art and technology will shake hands," said Christine Bethea, organizer for Geek Arts + Green Innovators Festival. GA/GI (pronounced GAH-gee) will be Pittsburgh's first festival of Art and Technology. "Pittsburgh has had some great recent events which make doing this, all that more exciting," said Bethea siting the 15 Minutes Gallery Burghbot Exhibition in June, 2009 @ the Pittsburgh Technology Council and the more recent Roy G Biv Festival of Noisy Robots in October funded by Sprout. GA/GI has also been fueled by the more positive moments of the city's G-20 experience.

It seems Pittsburgh is definitely ready for this festival. Participants already on board are Friendship Development Associates who has sanctioned turning the Friday, April 2, 2010 Unblurred art crawl into a high tech arts extravaganza, Jonano eco chic clothing, Union Project, The Pittsburgh Technology Council, Art + Technology at CMU, Art Energy Design, Ingram Clockworks, Modern Formations and a host of other organizations, galleries and individuals. Specific information on the event, its organizers and how to get involved can be found on the GA/GI blog.
