This showcase will present a sampling of digital research and culture, and serve as a microcosm of what ultimately will be expanded into a statewide event, the Redstick Digital Media Festival in 2015. Projects created through the College of Music & Dramatic Arts EnOvation partnership with the College of Engineering will be showcased. Work from the School of Music’s Experimental Music and Digital Media programs will be exhibited as well as Randy Dannenberg’s video production class.

Louisiana has invested time, money, and effort into Digital Media as an identity for the state. Already it has inspired rapid economic development, strong corporate investment and entrepreneurship, as well as remarkable advances in the digital culture in the state. Although the economic benefits have been recognized, Louisiana needs a way to expose a larger audience to the emerging digital culture and tech advances.
