Please join us for a free workshop on DIY “50KB” web design with SCA alumnus Deanna Peters / Mutable Subject.
In this hands-on, bring-your-own-laptop workshop, multidisciplinary artist, dancer, and web designer Deanna Peters will show you useful, accessible strategies to hack and reduce your website, while still staying creative, design-forward, highly responsive, and especially less environmentally burdensome.
No prior web design experience is necessary, but even experienced designers will discover great tips and tricks. And remember: bring your own computer!
Presented by the Small File Media Festival.

Small File Photo Festival
6:00pm, Sat 28 Jan 2023
Camera manufacturers, IT companies and streaming platforms endlessly push for higher resolutions to market their latest products. Meanwhile smaller images offer wider accessibility and circulation, as well as an exciting and diverse range of aesthetic possibilities to explore.
We are demanding—unleash creative r/evolution! We are demanding—destroy the large-file clichés of thinking that prevent us from imaging a world otherwise!- Small File Media Festival
Why small files? Because streaming media is killing the planet.
