Computer Arts History and Contemporary Practice

The Computer Arts Society (CAS) was founded in 1968 to promote the understanding of the role of digital and electronic media in the arts. As it has developed over time, a key aim has become to ensure that the long history of the computer arts is recognised by contemporary artists, technologists, audiences and collectors. The society currently organises talks, events, exhibitions and performances, and uses social media to highlight the ways that digital and electronic technologies can be of value to the creative sector. After celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2018, CAS renewed its commitment to promoting the use of digital media in contemporary practice and to providing a forum for diverse audiences of all ages and backgrounds to meet and exchange ideas. The Computer Arts Society is a specialist group of the BCS Chartered Institute for IT and works closely The Computer Arts Archive Community Interest Company.
