CHICAT is more than just a beautiful space. We see the life-changing work we do as part of a movement. Important to that movement are the following key principles:
Environment shapes behavior
Every human being is an asset and every life is valuable
Design thinking solves human problems and expands human possibility
Being engaged in the broader conversation matters
Creativity fuels enterprise
CHICAT’s unique offerings are rooted in the connection between art and technology. Art is a necessary bridge to education, to understanding. Throughout history, artists have relied on technology to push ideas forward. In fact, the word technology stems from the Greek word “techni” which means art. CHICAT’s programming, staffing, marketing and organizational principles stem from and build on the synergy between art, technology and community-building.
