Video Pool Media Arts Cen­tre is an orga­ni­za­tion that sup­ports the pro­duc­tion, edu­ca­tion, pre­sen­ta­tion and dis­tri­b­u­tion of media-based art­work, includ­ing but not lim­it­ed to, sound and video, mul­ti or sin­gle chan­nel, instal­la­tion, expand­ed cin­e­ma and exper­i­men­tal music, elec­tron­ic, arduino and com­put­er-pro­gram­ming and body-based per­for­mance incor­po­rat­ing audio / video, just to name a few. One way we help artists is through access to the tools and spaces nec­es­sary to com­plete work in these streams. Our long-run­ning Media Arts Res­i­den­cy pro­gram is a great oppor­tu­ni­ty for artists inter­est­ed in learn­ing or devel­op­ing tech­niques in these. It has been both a step­ping stone and a boon for a long list of artists, numer­ous of whom have gone to have careers in the media arts.

We are seek­ing appli­cants for the 2019 – 2020 MAR cycle and are offer­ing two streams of appli­ca­tion: Cat­e­go­ry I is direct­ed to artists who have not yet pro­duced or exhib­it­ed a new media work in a pro­fes­sion­al con­text and we encour­age those work­ing in oth­er dis­ci­plines to apply. Cat­e­go­ry II is for artists who have already estab­lished a back­ground in media arts and who need sup­port for their next project.

Suc­cess­ful appli­cants are award­ed year-long access to our exten­sive mobile equip­ment and edit­ing facil­i­ties, tech­ni­cal and edu­ca­tion­al ses­sions as well as the oppor­tu­ni­ty to pub­licly present the work cre­at­ed in the pro­gram. See our web­site for details about the pro­duc­tion resources we have to offer.
