Function Keys is a four-day conference organized by Centre3 for Print and Media Arts that aims to explore contemporary ideas and issues in new technologies and digital culture.

The conference happens from November 8th to November 11th, 2018 in downtown Hamilton, Ontario and includes a series of lecture style presentations, performances, demos and workshops.  Now in its fourth year, the goal of Function Keys is to provide a space for artists, hackers, computer programmers, and interested community individuals to come together to discuss and share ideas about emerging trends in new technology.

This year’s conference consists of a top roster of renowned speakers who are visionaries in their fields. Function Keys will also be hosting performances by artists who push the boundaries of traditional stage, instruments and space in their work. The guests are representative of diverse communities and backgrounds. Coming from a variety of different institutions, all are academics, hackers, DIY makers and/or practicing artists whose perspectives are informed by interdisciplinary approaches that investigate the intersections of art, technology and culture.
