The Boston Cyberarts Festival is an international biennial festival of art and technology in all media. It took place April 26 through May 11 2003. The 2003 Festival included over 75 organizations and 100 programs with over 350 artists, humanists, and scientists. It featured visual and performing arts and explored how artists throughout the world are using computers to advance traditional artistic disciplines and create new interactive worlds. Many of these artists would not have the opportunity to share their work with the public or to build partnerships with cultural institutions if not for the Cyberarts Festival.
In 2003, Boston Cyberarts organized its first ever CyberArtCentral for Kids. This collaborative space took place at Cloud Place on Boylston Street. Hundreds of kids and their parents came through the CyberArtCentral for Kids on the three weekends it was open during the Festival. Musical events included the American premiere of the Toy Symphony and the BEAMS Electronic Music Marathon among many others.
The festival also included three conferences: Digital Art and Public Space Conference, The Visual Improvisation Symposium, and the eNarratives Conference and public reading. The conferences were as important to the Festival as the exhibitions and performances in that they attracted a large national and international audience and were a vehicle for the development critical dialogues about art and technology.
