This October, kick back Austin-style, where creativity reigns through innovative artmaking, independent film, fresh technology, and great live music.

NAMAC is pleased to announce the selection of Austin for our 18th Conference. Partnering with Austin School of Film @ Motion Media Arts Center, The Frontier is Here: Create, Engage, Act – Oct. 17 - 20, 2007, will present keynotes, plenaries, and panels about the current state of the media and visual arts today. Screenings, tours, and parties will round out what promises to be an invigorating event taking place in “the live music capital of the world.”

Over three days, you will participate in engaging and thoughtful panels surrounding the three conference tracks of Create, Engage, and Act. We will explore the innovations and evolutions affecting the digital, media, and visual arts, including: education and training; youth media; copyright; virtual environments and the evolving interface; open source creation; using media and visual arts to inspire activism; and, cutting-edge time-based art and independent film.
