This session provides a summary of the latest work of the ACM SIGGRAPH Digital Arts Community (DAC), a dedicated organization that fosters year-round engagement and dialogue within the digital, electronic, computational, and media arts. Our primary objective is to facilitate dynamic scholarship and creative programming within the wider ACM SIGGRAPH community while promoting fruitful collaborations between artists and the computer graphics and interactive techniques community. This session will describe the various activities and initiatives undertaken by DAC, highlighting the SPARKS Lightning talks series, our online exhibitions, and other programs and activities associated with the group.

Furthermore, this session will offer a sneak preview of the creative content and programming at the SIGGRAPH 2023 conference. By providing insight into some of the accepted submissions and special events happening at this year’s conference, participants will gain valuable early access to the enriching experiences awaiting them.
