Digital Pragmata: The Future in Four Dimensions



The Depot
814 W. Broad Street, Richmond, VA 23284


How does our choice of creative tools impact the representation of time? What are some of the current trends in art and scholarship focusing on time? What does it mean for us even to say that we are talking about time, and how does our culture inform that understanding? Join us as dynamic practitioners in the arts and humanities come together in a conversation on the subject of time.

Doors open at 1:30 p.m. The event is free and open to the public, but please register. Parking is available for a fee in the West Broad StreetWest Main Street and West Cary Street parking decks. If special accommodations are needed or to register by phone, please call Gregory Kimbrell, events and programs coordinator, at (804) 828-0593 prior to April 17.
