The Centre for Networked Media and Performance (CNMAP) has as its mission the production, exploration and analysis of new forms of expression, communication and collaboration enabled by networks and networking technologies. That mission entails the following three principal objectives:
- To encourage and facilitate interdisciplinary collaboration between researchers around a shared interest in the potentials and effects of networks and networking.
- To encourage and facilitate the participation and engagement of the widest possible range of undergraduate and graduate students, community members, independent artists, emerging scholars, and others with this research.
- To discover, develop and support new, networked, accessible, and flexible ways of organizing both interdisciplinary research conversations and artistic activity.
