Georgia Tech’s Office of the Arts is pleased to announce that it is the recipient of a Doris Duke Charitable Foundation grant. Georgia Tech is one of 10 teams of performing arts organizations and artists nationwide who have received a combined total of $1.475 million for their efforts to develop public demand for jazz, theatre and/or contemporary dance. 

In its two-year, $150,000 project, Georgia Tech and choreographer Jonah Bokaer will work together to develop “Applied Movement: App Development for Choreography,” which will be a framework consisting of software components that enable groups to participate in a shared movement-based artistic and educational experience by using their mobile phones.  

In 2010-2011, Jonah Bokaer participated as a resident artist of the Ferst Center and through that residency he laid the ground work for further development with these constituent audiences: the students and faculty of Georgia Tech; the local dance community; and the students of our partner elementary schools, Drew Charter School and Centennial Place Elementary.  In this new residency he will continue to work with these three groups.
