The Dublin Art and Technology Association (DATA) was formed in March 2002 with the intention of promoting, exploring, discussing, and exhibiting art and technology in Ireland and the world. Based in Dublin, DATA is built on the idea that collaboration between artists, musicians, technologists, and academia is the key element in creating a rich cultural environment for the dialogue and conception of technological art practices. We aim to create an informal space where art and technology can meet and allow people from multiple backgrounds to come together, collaborate, and explore new directions and art practices.
DATA Events are free public events that take place monthly in the city. Location is dependent on venue availability but they typically take place in a pub or other social gathering space.
