We are a community of creative practitioners working at the intersection of art, media and technology and we need your help!

Since 2008, CAN has been at the forefront of innovation—facilitating and driving the conversations about technology, society and critical making. It has played an important role in uncovering and contextualising noteworthy work, featured on the festival and gallery circuit or developed as academic research. From online/offline publications to live events, CAN’s initiatives have played an instrumental in shaping the innovative creative practices we know today.

How do we get by?

We almost entirely rely on memberships on the site. With over 1,500 members at $20 per year, it helps ‘keep the lights on’. There are also occasional ads, purchased often by educational organisation to promote courses. All of this income covers for one person on the team (part time) and pays for hosting and a number of other services required to provide core features. We also have over 400 educational members that provide free access to over 5,000 students worldwide.

Research (35%), Editorial (25%), Development (15%), Admin (15%), Server (7.5%), Transaction fees (2%), Services (0.5%)

Why donate?

Your donations will allow CAN team to spend more time researching and writing, focusing on the site, related educational initiatives, commissioning articles and ensures we can keep the site as ad-free as possible. We want the team to grow, pay our writers and bring new features to the site. Your donations would help us do what we do best: showcase innovative work! Above all, we hope you will donate because you think CreativeApplications.Net is worth keeping around, for years to come.
