These session based workshops introduce various subjects and can be taken separately or as a series. Led by our Artists-in-Residence, Staff, or by Guest Artists, our workshops are the perfect place to learn a new skill, engage with principal ideas and people working at the intersection of arts and technology, and be guided through experiments pushing the boundaries of the Movement Lab's technology.
Line Up for Fall '20
