The Near North Mobile Media Lab (N2M2L) is an arts collective mandated to provide support to the media arts community in our region of Northern Ontario. We provide access to media arts education, opportunities for media arts dissemination, and support to a community of emerging and practicing media artists. N2M2L facilitates educational workshops, presents exhibitions, screenings and festivals, and provides support to our membership through equipment rentals and project assistance.
N2M2L has been supporting the creation and presentation of media art in the Near North since its inception in 2004. In order to overcome a fundamental obstacle of regional limitation, N2M2L is fully mobile with a trailer retrofitted to house production equipment for easier access around the vast landscape between Northern communities. N2M2L actively promotes access for all artists, regardless of age, class, gender, sexual orientation, race or ability and continues to work towards building a strong and vibrant media arts community in the Near North that offers support to artists at every level of their career.
