Pittsburgh Technology Council
is billing "Creative Clash!" as "The future of creativity, technology and a new innovation community in Pittsburgh." As the first event of PTC's new Creative Technology Network, in partnership with the Carnegie Museum of Art, the Jan. 26 presentation, panel discussion and reception will bring together some heavy hitters in the tech/arts community:
- MK Haley, Associate Executive Producer at Carnegie Mellon University’s Entertainment Technology Center;
- Gregg Behr, Executive Director of the Grable Foundation, and founder of Pittsburgh Kids+Creativity;
- Carl Kurlander, Executive Producer of Steeltown Entertainment, and film/television screenwriter and producer;
- Rob Deaner, Partner at Market Street Sound, and Vice President of the Pittsburgh Advertising Federation; and
- Tim Fletcher, Business Development Manager, Daedalus, and US Government Liaison Officer, Industrial Designers Society of America
"The idea is to have a conversation about how this group is growing in Pittsburgh, and what our strengths and weaknesses are, and what we can do as a next step to facilitate our growth as a community," says Kim Chestney Harvey, managing director of the Creative Technology Network. The group also may help point to current successes that other organizations at the intersection of the arts and technology can replicate. The current panel will be moderated by Lynn Zelevansky, director of the Carnegie Museum of Art.
Harvey says the Network, using events like the "Clash!" will be a hub to bring people together who will learn from each other and help each other find investors, employees and publicity, raising awareness of what is happening in this important regional sector.
