Pre­sented by MANO/RAMO in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Mod­ern Fuel and ReelOut

7 PM
Mod­ern Fuel, Tett Cen­tre, 370 King Street W #305, Kingston, ON K7L 2X4

The Media Arts Net­work of Ontario/Réseau des arts médi­a­tiques de l’Ontario  is call­ing on all cul­tural work­ers and artists engaged with media arts (film/video/new media/games/sound/etc.) in Kingston and sur­round­ing areas to gath­er for an infor­mal dis­cus­sion at Mod­ern Fuel on Fri­day May 13. This round-table fol­lows on a series of meet­ings held across Ontario by MANO on a rotat­ing basis. We would like to meet and dis­cuss the region’s chal­lenges, the cur­rent oppor­tu­ni­ties avail­able and the pos­si­bil­i­ties for future oppor­tu­ni­ties and col­lab­o­ra­tions.

Some of the sub­jects we will explore are: Are our local grant­i­ng oppor­tu­ni­ties con­ducive for indi­vid­ual artists or do they favour organizations/centres/col­lec­tives? How to bridge col­lab­o­ra­tions between the university/institutions and the greater com­mu­ni­ty? How can we bring more equi­ty and inclu­sive­ness to our region’s activ­i­ties? How we can increase pub­lic sec­tor invest­ment in arts, media and tech devel­op­ment and  infra­struc­ture in Kingston?

Let’s con­nect, dis­cuss and start the change.

Refresh­ments will be pro­vid­ed.
