The Grid

ZERO1 is a partner organization of The Grid, a global network connecting artists, technologists, cultural institutions, policy makers, and the global tech industry initiated by EUNIC Silicon Valley. The Grid follows an ambitious vision: to incorporate art-thinking into the development of new technologies and to jump-start a conversation between artists, technologists, and policy makers from around the world. ZERO1 has participated in panel conversations and curated interactive experiences for “The Grid: Exposure - Art + Tech + Policy Days,” which explored innovative ways to reconnect the world in a state of pandemic isolation and contributes to its annual Art + Tech report.

Matchbox Labs

Matchbox is an art+tech interactive lab series, hosted at CounterPulse in partnership with ZERO1 and Kinetech Arts, that seeds collaboration beyond disciplines.

Designed as public practicum labs that are open to the public, Matchbox pairs creative technologists with dancers and choreographers to spark critical investigations and seed cutting-edge works.

Matchbox creates an opportunity for these two creative communities to find places of overlapping values, and serves as a framework for a more collaborative urban arts ecology.
