The Future of Community
How do we move forward developing a strong community of “TouchDesigneurs”? Isabelle will open this conversation by highlighting her experiences (in “Education and Proliferation”) over the last 10 years, witnessing and assisting TouchDesigner community development around the world. The talk will then progress into an open dialogue with Summit participants to discuss how we might engage in growing communities locally and globally. What tools, resources and models are available to us? What next? Summit participants are encouraged to bring their ideas to the table throughout the Summit. Let’s brainstorm!
An alumni of the Ontario College of Art and Design and the Beal Institute for Strategic Creativity, Isabelle joined the Derivative team in 2008 to assume the role of scouting out and writing about the growing body of work produced by artists and designers using TouchDesigner. Closely engaged with the community and its members’ evolving needs and objectives, Isabelle detects early signals and trends to inform development, facilitate connections, alliances and the production of educational initiatives and events.
