BERKELEY ART MUSEUM
The main part of the conferece will take place at the Berkeley Art Museum. The UC Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive is the visual arts centre of the University of California, Berkeley, and one of the largest university art museums in the United States. The museum is steeped in a history of radical interdisciplinary creativity and provides the ideal environment for researchers, practitioners and artists to come together to examine and reflect on the role of technology in Everyday Creativity. This spirit of pragmatic creativity stretches back to the earliest days of the museum as captured by Pacific Film Archive founder Sheldon Renan in a February 1971 interview:

"This whole thing is put together with spit, chewing gum, good intentions, cooperation from the film community and overhead paid by the Museum. I'm not over-budget or under-budget because I haven't got a budget."

UC BERKELEY FACULTY CLUB
Workshops, Tutorials, and the Graduate Symposium take place at the UC Berkeley Faculty Club - an internationally renowned example of Craftsman design. The Faculty Club provides a space to explore and develop new ideas, and many networking opportunities.

TRAVEL
UC Berkeley easily accessed by public transport e.g. you can use the BART to get to the conference venue - there is information about this from the Berkeley Art Museum website. Using public transport reduces our carbon footprint, but if you really must travel by car there are a number of commercial carparks which will charge you by the hour for parking on UC Berkeley Campus and around downtown Berkeley. The conference itself does not provide car parking facilities.
