Leah Gilliam’s long career of making media continues to expand the horizons of technology-based art in relationship to culture. An accomplished film/videomaker, new media artist, coder, strategist and game designer, Gilliam brings race, gender and sexual orientation into sharp conversation through interactive projects. Her interests range from the obsolescence of technology to the cultural and imaginative implications of human contact with Mars. More recently, her analog board games create a low-tech space for people to have real-world conversations through fantastical scenarios.

Also an educator committed to equity in the tech world, Gilliam held the post of new portfolio strategist at Hive Learning Network NYC and now serves as the newly appointed VP of Strategy & Innovation at Girls Who Code, a national non-profit organization working to close the gender gap in technology.
