Boston’s ever-changing landscape spawned a new organization this year, Art Technology New England or ATNE. Providing a forum for communication between multimedia artists, academic departments, non-profits, and businesses, ATNE aspires to unify these sometimes disparate parties and brighten the future of the arts, technology and business in New England. A private function was held at the house of George Fifield in November 2009 to kick off the endeavor, then a public bash in December called the Spark Gala. Literature has been distributed to potential members in these four categories: Artist, Business, Non-Profit, and Schools and events are listed here.
This type of institution is much needed here in New England.
