Masterclass: Deepfakes - Synthetic Media and Synthesis

ThoughtWorks Arts

No Funding


How to participate? This masterclass asks for artists, technologists, coders, dreamers, advocates, musicians, poets and others to apply with their best ideas. Describe a project idea you want to try, the technologies you’d like to get into, and/or the skills you have to contribute. If you are an artist and do not have tech skills, that is okay. Conversely, if you are a programmer and don’t have any compelling ideas, that is okay as well. --> If you have any special equipment or skills, we welcome you to tell us. When we receive your applications, we will match you up with others. We group people together around the most compelling proposals. This means your specific idea may not be selected, in which case we will try to find you a team and a project which matches your skills and interests. This is an ad-hoc process, and we can’t always match everybody to teams, but we work hard to create as many people as possible, create aligned teams.
