Technology affords us many possibilities. From teaching our children, to connecting our leaders, technology improves our quality of life as it brings us together. The Creative Corridor is a strong community full of tech savvy artists and entrepreneurs, but how is that technology being used to drive and connect us?  It is technology that will continue to inspire and build creativity and connectivity in the arts and in our community. The panel will discuss the intersection of art and technology and explain the role that both play in our growing community. Featuring Derek Balsley, CEO of Art of Ed, EcoLips founder Steve Shriver, and Seed Here Studio co-founder Andy Stoll.
