We are taking applications for the January 2024-December 2024 board term. The Conflux board is dedicated to addressing the following questions:
- How can we innovate at the intersection of art and technology?
- How can we create hands-on programs and opportunities for students of all backgrounds to explore art tech?
- How can we build a highly collaborative art tech community and ecosystem at Harvard?
- How do we support students in envisioning and building the future of art tech?
Please reflect on these questions in your application to our 2024 board. Think big! Think across disciplines! And think collaboratively—just like we aim to do on the Conflux board.
