I’m happy to announce i’ve been selected for the Amplify Digital Artist Initiative 2020 cohort by British Council, Somerset House Studios and MUTEK, joining 20+ artists from Argentina, Canada, and the UK. This artist development and collaborative programme will support me over the next year as I develop my work and our cohort will join a series of public-facing discursive, exhibition and performance activities during MUTEK Montreal’s up and coming festival’s hybrid festival edition running this September 8 – 13.
Amplify Digital Arts Initiative connects and empowers an active network of women-identifying artists and professionals working in the digital arts, sound and immersive storytelling sectors in Canada, Latin America and the UK. Harnessing different cultures and experiences, AMPLIFY D.A.I fosters a platform for dialogue on gender equity and commits resources to career and capacity building activities, peer exchanges and opportunities for cohort participants to showcase their work in the context of dynamic, contemporary festivals, events and residencies. You can read more about the programme and amazing artists, i’m so excited to be involved and learn from being part of this community.
AMPLIFY D.A.I is an initiative of the British Council in partnership with MUTEK Montréal, MUTEK Buenos Aires and Somerset House Studios in the UK. The programme is supported by Canada Council for the Arts and Fundación Williams.
