Creative Arts and Technology Spaces @BAI 

Who we Are

The Creative Arts and Technology Spaces (or CATS, 🐈‍⬛ , for short ) @ the Brown Arts Institute provide the campus community with inclusive, adaptive, and experimental spaces equipped with emerging technology to support creative digital work and inspire a community of makers. We embrace thinking through making as a powerful approach to design and learning. New members can gain access by completing this orientation

Creative ART + Tech

Some of the creative modes of production we are interested in and help facilitate are video production, podcasting, large-format art printing, 3D printing, virtual reality, electronics, sewing, vinyl and laser cutting, etc. Our goal is to lower the barrier of entry to these technologies for creatives by providing access to equipment, software, and spaces to work.

CATS spaces and services are open to all students, staff, and faculty at Brown. We require all new users to become general members first by taking our quick, online orientation, after which you will gain access to some of our spaces. Other areas, and pieces of equipment require additional training. Please peruse our website to learn more about those requirements.
