DATA Ed

Denver Arts + Technology Advancement (DATA) has a mission of Empowerment through Creative Technology, and envisions a world where ALL people have access to limitless creative possibilities. We work to bring this vision into reality by educating our community about and providing access to the tools and technology needed to create relevant projects in the digital age.

Technology is something which is often seen as a privilege, expensive, difficult to learn, and simply utilitarian. We want to show you that the opposite is true; that anyone can learn how to utilize technology in ways that are truly accessible, inspirational, beautiful, and most of all enjoyable! We work to break down the digital divide that halts progress and keeps creative technology in the hands of only those who can afford it.**

**We focus on free software, so students and educators can continue to develop their skills after we leave!

We love creating custom tailored programs to fit your needs. To get your imagination flowing, we offer workshops, performances, classes, lectures, residencies and professional development in:
