Phil Hansen is an internationally recognized multimedia artist, speaker, author and innovator—at the forefront of bringing art to a wider audience. Crashing irreverently through conventional boundaries, he works at the intersection of traditional art, electronic media, offbeat materials, and interactive experiences. He is most widely known for his meta-art, videos that document the creation process (sometimes even through destruction), showing millions that art is action, not just result. Hansen’s work also extends deeply into traditional media with features on the Discovery Channel, Good Morning America, The Rachael Ray Show, Last Call with Carson Daly, Glamour and many more. His work is sought-after by many influential clients including the Grammy Awards, Disney, Skype, Mazda and the Rockefeller Foundation.

Very engaging conference day for this STEAM newbie!
My first experience with an online conference and it was by far the best day ever! I enjoyed it so much that I will be registering at the next conference in July! Very informative and enjoyable!
This was my second Connectivity conference, and both have given me tons of ideas to implement right away in my own classroom, and to share with my colleagues. It has been a great way to supplement my PD hours with high-quality and truly arts-focused information. Absolutely worth the time!
Here's an outline of the day's events.
A more detailed schedule with specific session titles will be released in mid-January.
