The Art, Technology, and Culture (ATC) Lecture Series at UC Berkeley is an internationally respected forum for ideas that imagine the future — a window into creative minds that inspire the next generation of innovators. The ATC series, free of charge and open to the public, is coordinated by the Berkeley Center for New Media and has presented over 150 leading artists, thinkers, and writers who question assumptions and push boundaries at the forefront of art, technology, and culture.

Speakers are chosen from a diverse range of fields, artists, writers, curators, and scholars who consider contemporary issues at the intersection of aesthetic expression, emerging technologies, and cultural history, from a critical perspective. Since its founding in 1997, the series has presented more than 150 speakers, including Billy Kluver, Laurie Anderson, David Byrne, Miranda July, Gary Hill, and Bruno Latour.
