Ann Arbor’s Intermitten conference is back, merging talks from the tech and arts together for a weekend of inspiration June 8th- June 9th.

The goal of Intermitten is to “explore ways in which creativity has an ever-expanding rol in our increasingly-connected world.”  The team hopes to expose Ann Arbor’s local creative community to visitors, too.  The main themes for this year’s conference are how to persevere with passion, creating collaboratively, creating for a greater good, and exploring ethics.

  • Rik Cordero, Senior Media Producer at Duo Security
    “From Rappers to Hackers: Why I Left the Music Industry for Technology”
  • Linette Lao (with Seth Petty & Thea A. Eck), Board President at FLY Art Center
    “Learning to FLY: How an Artist, Tech Company, and Students Collaborated to Improve an Elementary School”
  • Sarah Pappalardo, Co-Founder and Editor of Reductress
    “Women, The Man, and the Media: Using Humor to Build Social Awareness”
