Apply Now For ITP Camp 2017

Monday, Jan 30, 2017

It’s back again! Applications are now open for ITP Camp 2017 - ITP’s annual summer camp for grown ups.

ITP Camp is like the ITP graduate program put in the blender and smooshed into a month. It is ITP’s test kitchen, its R&D arm, its back of the napkin. It’s the place where we encourage you, our faculty, former students, colleagues, and community to experiment, challenge, and play. For 37 years ITP has been a hub of experimentation in art, media and technology. ITP Camp is where ITP tries the newest and edgiest on for size.

Beyond it being an opportunity to attend neat tech workshops or play with new toys, ITP Camp offers time and space for people of diverse backgrounds to come together, share ideas and skills, engage in critical discourse, and make things happen. This year we are particularly interested in what YOU want to make of it. Once accepted we will be putting campers in touch with each other sooner than usual so there is more time to start scheming about what can be accomplished in June.

Here’s the info for this year:

DATES: Friday, June 2nd  - Thursday, June 29th

FEES: $1300 for the month  - Same price as last year! Discounts available for Early Birds (pay by April 1), ITP Alumni, and ITP Camp Alumni. (Maximum of 2 discounts).

Because of its experimental structure, the content of camp changes every year. We don’t know what 2017 will bring but here are some examples of sessions from last year:

  • Bodies in the Browser

  • Intro to Unity 3D for Non Gamers

  • Building Kinetic Sculptures

  • A Brief History of Tech, Sex and Fashion

  • Sea of Commodities: Making in China

  • 3D Paper Fab

  • Tools for Impossible Ideas: Approaching Civic Freedom through Public Art

  • Leathercraft Basics

  • Open Source Cellular Networks

  • Zap: Understand electricity better by generating it

  • Cyberpunk and Afrofuturism in the 21st century

  • A Brief Introduction to Drone Journalism

  • Open Video Collective: Hacking the Election

  • Soft Robotics for Space Applications

Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis so long as spots are still available. Apply early to make sure you get a spot! http://itp.nyu.edu/camp2017/apply
