sponsors and partners
ACT sponsors and partners are organizations that are longstanding financial and programmatic contributors to ACT. They are listed below:
The Council for the Arts at MIT (CAMIT) is an international volunteer group of alumni and friends established to support the arts at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The Council’s mission is to act as a catalyst for the development of a broadly based, highly participatory program in the arts, firmly founded on teaching, practice, and research at the Institute, and to conduct arts-related fundraising on behalf of MIT.
The Erste Foundation (Erste Stiftung), based in Austria, sponsors The György Kepes Fellowship for Advanced Studies and Transdisciplinary Research in Art, Culture and Technology which endows outstanding scientists, artists, architects, and cultural practitioners with a stipend of four to five months, enabling them to realize innovative projects within the highly stimulating and singular context of the MIT Program in Art, Culture and Technology. Fellowships can be awarded to candidates who are from, or whose practices are based in, Central and South Eastern European countries.
The Visual Arts section of Munich-based Siemens Stiftung develops and realizes exhibitions in the field of contemporary art with a strong thematic focus on emerging issues in societies today. A collaboration between ACT and Siemens Stiftung in 2010-2011 produced AR – Artistic Research which explored artistic methodologies and forms of inquiry at the intersection of art, science and technology.
