Founded in 2000, ZERO1 is a nonprofit arts organization that aims to address complex social challenges by producing community-driven emerging media and digital art projects. We believe that artistic experimentation with emergent technologies inspires novel creative strategies and broadens our critical understanding of the world. Through a global network of partners, we bridge governmental, academic, corporate, and cultural worlds to build engaged and vibrant communities that drive social action.
In 2012, we launched the ZERO1 Garage. Through the lens of art and technology, the ZERO1 Garage informed strategies for research, development and creativity by provoking challenges that address the complex world in which we live. Envisioned as a platform for creative risk-takers from the arts and culture, business, science and academic sectors to engage, interact and spur innovative change, the Garage also allowed ZERO1 to establish a year-round presence for the organization in SoFA, San Jose’s cultural district.
