Contact is touch and affect;  it is a means of forming communities and collaborations; it is a vehicle for contagion; it is a place, an action and an interface.

The participating artists, technologists and scholars in CONTACT address a wide range of topics in their work: from climate change and sustainable food systems to space exploration, social protest, communal healing rituals, forgotten histories, the non-human world and material culture.

They do this through algorithmic music performances, interactive installation, herbal medicine workshops, textile design, immersive theater productions, participatory dance performances, worldbuilding and mindfulness workshops, poetry, wearable sculptures and much much more.

Tickets are free for Connecticut College community and are pay-what-you-can for local residents. Read below for more on the symposium’s structure and to learn about some of the highlights of our rich, 3 day program.
