Kids Program

Seeing Music | Hearing Images

August 6-10 @ ICMC 2018

Seeing Music | Hearing Images is a five-day educational iIMPACT program for kids as part of the 2018 ICMC conference. This educational program focuses on participatory and collaborative ways to create art, utilizing sound, music, images, and the city of Daegu as a source for inspiration. In particular, we have developed the program through the lens of this year’s ICMC theme Preserve | Engage | Advance where urban soundscapes are focal conference program themes.

iIMPACT (Interactive Multimedia Performing Arts Creative Technology)

IMPACT was conceived in 2007 at New York University (NYU) as multi-week workshop. The workshop began as an experimental workshop to engage college student performers in utilizing advanced multimedia technologies. The program soon after became a regular NYU summer workshop offering and has grown each year ever since. In 2017, IMPACT has been relaunched as  iIMPACT under the leadership of its new Director Tae Hong Park who created and launched two new initiatives including the Kids Program for the 2018 ICMC and an upcoming workshop that will include STEAM layers.
