MUTEK Forum, Montreal, Canada
This year, for its 21st edition, MUTEK Festival has gone hybrid, offering a variety of electronic music and audiovisual performances, interactive gallery, conferences and live audio recordings in physical locations and on its all-new virtual platform virtual.mutel.org. The platform will be accessible for free from September 8 to 13, 2020.
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.
The 2020 cohort for AMPLIFY D.A.I, selected by the British Council, Somerset House Studios and MUTEK, features 20+ artists from Argentina, Canada, and the UK. This new cohort will join a series of public-facing discursive, exhibition and performance activities during the festival’s hybrid edition running September 8 – 13 – accessible to the world through MUTEK’s online portals.
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.
