MIT Center for Art, Science & Technology
March 15, 2018
The MIT Center for Art, Science & Technology (CAST) connects the worlds of art, science, and technology by collaborating with departments, labs, and centers across the Institute in four primary areas of activity.
To integrate the arts across the curriculum, CAST supports the development of new classes that reach across disciplines and majors. To enrich and encourage artistic collaborations, CAST looks for unexpected partnerships for visiting artists and seeks to embed residencies in ongoing research and teaching at MIT. To encourage the experimental phase of artistic creation, CAST provides creativity seed funds and research grants for faculty, curators, and postdoctoral associates. To share this creative work and knowledge with the public, CAST produces concerts, symposia, exhibitions, and publications in multiple media platforms.
A joint initiative of the Office of the Provost, the School of Architecture and Planning (SA+P) and the School of the Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences (SHASS), the Center is funded in part by a generous grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
