“subtle technologies brings people together to promote wonder, incite creativity and spark innovation across disciplines”
Subtle Technologies is a gathering of artists, scientists, technologists, engineers and the general public. We share cross-disciplinary ideas, explore new technologies, showcase creativity and incubate the next generation of practitioners at the intersection of art, science and technology.
2011 marks the 14th year of our festival and organization. Our audience and visibility have steadily grown since 1997. We are well-known in Toronto and internationally as a unique venue for bringing together cutting edge science and art.
Our events are attended by intellectually curious people from all parts of society—especially those with an interest in art, technology, science, engineering, architecture or design.
Our annual June Festival includes a symposium (3 days of interdisciplinary presentations, demos, lightning talks and panel discussions), performances, exhibitions and films, speed networking and more. Starting in 2010–2011, we began a series of year-round events, partnering with many community groups to run workshops, literary events, documentary screenings and other events throughout the year—all focused on bringing together art, science and technology.
