The International Digital Media and Arts Association (iDMAa) was founded in early 2004 by a group of 15 universities. iDMAa is dedicated to serving educators, practitioners, scholars, and organizations with interests in digital media.
Around the world, universities and colleges are creating new programs and departments to teach and conduct research in Digital Media and Digital Arts. These programs are emerging from partnerships of Art, Computer Science, Communications-Radio/TV-Journalism, English, Music, Theater, Film and other disciplines. These programs often don’t fit within the neat and tidy confines of traditional university structures. Thus, their creators and champions often forge interdisciplinary partnerships to create opportunities, attract money, and stimulate explosions of creativity.
The International Digital Media and Arts Association was organized by and for people working in these margins. Margins are frontiers, but they are also uncertain places. Marginal people upset the establishment, take risks and make new things happen.
If you want to succeed on this new frontier, join the militantly marginal members of iDMAa.
