The Intersection of Art, Technology and Place

November 10-12, 2021

Scottsdale, Arizona


CODAworx is thrilled to announce that we are partnering with Scottsdale Public Art, a division of Scottsdale Arts, to produce this year’s CODAsummit.  This groundbreaking event will be both physical and virtual, using the latest technology to bring people together in person as well as online.

CODAsummit is the only conference focused on the exciting ways creative professionals are incorporating technology to create artwork installations that are changing the ways we experience our environments.

This year’s conference will be hosted by the Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts, and will take place during Canal Convergence, the premiere interactive light art festival at the Scottsdale canal.  This year’s Canal Convergence theme:  art and technology – in tribute to CODAsummit!

We invite you to join us in Scottsdale or online, where the art + technology community will come together to network, share information and resources, and redefine the creative field in the process.

Check back with us to stay tuned to CODAsummit content, speakers, events and experiences as they develop!
