We amplify the impact of arts and creativity at Georgia Tech.
We engage with the work and research happening on campus, provide the resources and experience of our professional staff to support its development, and facilitate the presentation of creative projects at sites all around campus including the Ferst Center for the Arts.
Significant instances of this impact are the Georgia Tech teams that have participated in all three of the ACCelerate Creativity and Innovation Festivals in Washington, D.C. In 2022, Georgia Tech Arts enabled teams from the School of Architecture at the College of Design, and the School of Literature, Media, and Communication at the Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts, to bring their work to a national audience at the Smithsonian National Museum of American History.
“The ACCelerate Festival is an opportunity to showcase the incredible possibilities that await us at the intersection of art and technology,” said Georgia Tech Provost Steve McLaughlin. “We are proud to once again send teams from Georgia Tech and participate alongside our ACC peers. The arts have an undeniable power to teach, heal, and transform us, and this festival gives great visibility and a new way to experience the innovative and impactful education and research that is taking place on our campuses each day.”
