It's coming! This November 17th is the #CalBigGive. Join us in supporting the innovative research and teaching of the Berkeley Center for New Media! Our faculty and students are changing the world through developments in artificial intelligence, design tools, sound, architecture, and the way we think about the technologies circumscribing our lives. Together, we can think bigger and shape the future of new media.

Want to know more about what we do? We provide a truly interdisciplinary space where humanists, artists, and technologists meet to change the way that we think about and interact with new media. We provide seed funding for faculty research along with weekly meetings to kickstart collaborations across the disciplines. We train the next generation of young minds to work at the intersection these fields and develop the ambitious research our future needs -- and then we provide them with the support that allows them to realize these goals. And we share everything we do. We offer free public programming, including the world-famous Art, Technology, and Culture Colloquium and the History and Theory of New Media Lecture Series, as well as countless symposia, exhibitions, performances, workshops, and hackathons, to shape the conversation around new media in our world with your help!
