With much love and gratitude, I thank you and those who have supported my tenure at Leonardo. Today I am stepping aside as Chief Creative Officer of the International Society for the Arts, Sciences, and Technology.
Seize the Moment, a collaboration with the Humanities Lab, the Leonardo-ASU Initiative, and the Global Futures Lab, is excited to announce our first round of seed grant recipients to demonstrate the power of the arts and humanities to understand and address intersecting crises in the global community.

Leonardo stands for the free and open exchange of ideas and access to Art, Science, & Technology. We abhor acts of violence, oppression, and military aggression that replace such freedom with fear and intimidation. We recognize that the suppression of creativity anywhere is a threat to humanity everywhere. Please join us in solidarity with creative interventions underway and ongoing from members of the Leosphere and beyond.
Join Claudia Alick on the First Friday and Third Monday of every month to talk everything Criptech! This will be an open space to talk about the intersections of disability, art and technology, including accessible design, access choreographies, and building communities to support this work.
These are drop-ins, so you can join as and when you like.

Groundworks aims to raise an initial $5,000 to defray the costs of working directly with the artists to explore their processes in ways that are accessible and equitable. This will fund the running of a cross-disability documentation workshop and pilot data collection activities with fully accessible content. If Ground Works reach our second goal of $10,000, this will help scale data collection and cover the technical costs of producing accessible, multi-modal materials that allow for wide community access on the Ground Works platform.
