    PULSE Art + Technology Festival 2020

    23jan27PULSE Art + Technology Festival 2020

    Event Details

    Start the year off with a bang as Telfair’s annual PULSE Art + Technology Festival faces the future with exciting exhibitions, lectures, and educational events for all ages. PULSE 2020’s theme “Futility to Futurity,” is explored by artists and creatives who point out how technology can either work against us or help us solve the world’s largest problems.

    The related exhibition Machines of Futility features interactive works that question technology’s usefulness. Second Nature, an exhibition in the museum’s TechSpace will connect virtual reality, augmented reality, and games with the natural world, fragile ecosystems, and climate change.

    In addition to opening night talks by featured artists, PULSE will include the special event “A Climate for Change,” with short films and expert speakers showcasing groundbreaking technology, ideas, and strategies being implemented around the world and right here in Savannah. Morning programs for students focus on STEAM education and feature talks by artists and scientists. A Free Family Day, tours, and youth workshops round out the program.
