Inter Arts Matrix

Inter Arts Matrix fos­ters the devel­op­ment of works in which the var­i­ous artis­tic dis­ci­plines are not sim­ply set besides each oth­er, but inter­min­gle and influ­ence each oth­er, cre­at­ing new forms of expres­sion in the process. Whether a film, an exhi­bi­tion or instal­la­tion, a con­cert, a the­atre per­for­mance, an opera or a work of art cre­at­ed col­lec­tive­ly, the projects devel­oped at Inter Arts Matrix seek to find poet­ry and mean­ing in the use of tech­nol­o­gy, old and new. Inter Arts Matrix empha­sis is on sup­port­ing artists through the entire cre­ation process, from the con­cep­tu­al stage to devel­op­ment, pro­duc­tion, pre­sen­ta­tion, doc­u­men­ta­tion and pro­mo­tion of a new work of inter­dis­ci­pli­nary art.

Inter Arts Matrix also empha­sizes art in pub­lic spaces, and art works that go beyond inter­ac­tiv­i­ty to involv­ing the pub­lic as active par­tic­i­pants. In this way, IAM can inter­sect with any geo­graph­ic loca­tion and audi­ences of any cul­tur­al ori­en­ta­tion. IAM pro­motes the work to audi­ences local­ly, nation­al­ly and inter­na­tion­al­ly, act­ing as a cul­tur­al ambas­sador, not only for the region’s artists, but also for the Water­loo Region as a site for cul­tur­al cre­ation and innovation.
