The seminars and workshops will take place in six high-tech rooms just off the lobby of the new Media Center for Art and Design. The soaring Atrium will be the location of the breaks and the poster sessions.

Treehouse Dorm

Affordable housing for Attendees

Double rooms with private and shared baths will be available for a flat rate for all six nights of the event. This brand new dormitory, nicknamed the Treehouse, is across the street from both MassArt and the Wentworth Institute of Technology. 
Both schools have campus cafeterias that will be open to Symposium attendees for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
