    FAST Future: MIT Forum on the Arts

    FAST Future is an unprecedented convening of MIT creative arts faculty, alumni and students and their interdisciplinary colleagues from throughout the Institute, who have created FAST, the Festival of Art, Science and Technology that celebrates MIT’s 150th anniversary.

    Although the arts may not be among the first things that come to mind when people think of MIT’s leadership in science and engineering, they are in fact a “secret ingredient” that feeds the Institute’s one-of-a-kind culture of invention and creativity. This unique environment enables boundaries to be bridged, new fields to be founded with astonishing fluency, and world-changing entities – like the Center for Advanced Visual Studies (CAVS) and the Media Lab – to be launched and to flourish.

    On April 16th, we celebrate this culture and engage in a future-oriented series of debates, demonstrations, and open studios. We examine current practice and lay the groundwork for the future, both by examining the most promising artistic and theoretical questions and by exploring the most effective pedagogical, research and production infrastructure that will assure a vigorous expansion of MIT’s creative culture for generations to come.
