Public Launch
The Institute for Distributed Creativity


The research of the Institute for Distributed Creativity (iDC) focuses on
collaboration in media art, technology, and theory with an emphasis on
social contexts. The iDC is an independent international network with a
participatory and flexible institutional structure that combines advanced
creative production, research, events, and documentation.

While the iDC makes appropriate use of emerging low-cost and free social
software it balances these activities with regular face-to-face meetings.

In May 2004 the iDC was founded by Trebor Scholz following the "Free
Cooperation: Networks, Art & Collaboration" conference.

Many events of the Institute for Distributed Creativity are hosted by the
Department of Media Study, State University of New York at Buffalo and by
collaborating institutions in New York City and internationally.
