Established in 2006, NEXMAP began as a research and production platform for exploring artistic practice and traditional forms of mastery in response to the advent of digital tools. Recognizing the unique power of art and technology to support new ways of thinking, and seeing a tremendous need to develop the next generation of learners and creators motivated by a sense of radical inquiry, NEXMAP shifted in 2013 to focus on education, equity, and interdisciplinary learning in a connected world.
