NARRATIVE
NowNet Arts Conference is an annual event for artists, technologists, researchers, educators, and industry professionals advancing topics in contemporary network arts for the ongoing development of the field. The 2019 theme Social Purpose in Contemporary Network Arts is a prominent motivation and capacity of this work. The ability to transcend geographic distance through performance and technology has inspired new forms of social connection and impact. As an artistic medium, contemporary network arts is a social purpose. It has also served as a vehicle for community projects on themes such as peace building, the environment, and diversity. Technologists in the field have incorporated social topics including access, green technology, and international network development. The NowNet Arts Conference 2019 Social Purpose in Contemporary Network Arts is a program of papers, workshops, presentations, and concert demonstrations that feature this topic and generate new innovations for this work forward.
