- Duration of Activity: 01/01/2012 -31/12/2013
In 2012 the Center for Digital Art became a part of Cluster, a network of eight visual arts organizations that are each located in residential areas on the peripheries of major cities. These organizations share similar work scale and are located in neighborhoods with similar problems. Cluster has the goal of facilitating knowledge exchange in relation to how our organizations operate within our local contexts.
During 2012-2013 the group collectively visits each of the organizations in the network in order to look closely at the ways in which we are each operating in relation to our respective localities. The Cluster visit at the center, was between February 28th and March 2nd 2013.
A public discussion with Cluster members took place at the Center on Friday, March 1st, at 10:30am, in which each of the group members presented their local neighborhood context as a case study for economic, social and political processes that might be municipal, national or global.
