The convergent media collective was formed when joey lopez moved to San Antonio, Texas and began teaching at the University of the Incarnate Word. Along with students, community members the group came into an official form in the summer of 2013. The group consists of artists, tech geeks, teachers, musicians, new media artists, social media professionals, photographers, activist and more.
The goal of the group is to do cutting edge new media works throughout the world. Based out of San Antonio, TX, our first task has been to bring awareness of our groups ability locally. Within months our work has transcended San Antonio and into Austin, Tx. Collaborating at a national level has begun.
Our collaborations revolve around working with non-profits on cutting edge projects. It has brought a reciprocal learning and mentoring experience where the collective learns from each other and also learn from the clients they work with. In return the clients are exposed to cutting edge work and new ways of thinking about production.
