Arts Tech is an ideal platform for fostering youth development. Over the past four decades, Zuni Icosahedron has been an adamant advocate for the advancement of Arts Tech. This commitment stems from the fundamental nature of theatre art, which seamlessly blends art and technology. Theatre art, with its intricate combination of stage design, lighting, projection, sound, and performance, embodies the synergy between art and technology. In today’s educational landscape, the STEAM approach is endorsed to enable young people to learn science, teamwork, craftsmanship, and creativity through the fusion of art and technology.
Today, Arts Tech has entered a new dimension. The internet, communication technologies, and the advent of various new devices such as projectors, immersive audio equipment, smartphones, and IoT models have given rise to a novel technological ecosystem. However, to harness and utilise this ecosystem, young individuals are bound to acquire foundational skills – to create with their hands, brains, eyes, and senses.
