The Media Arts Network of Ontario / Réseau des arts médiatiques de l’Ontario (MANO/RAMO) is pleased to announce our next gathering of media artists, cultural workers, researchers and allies. This conference, titled Renewal, will bring together cultural workers and artists from across Ontario, Canada and internationally to discuss renewing the conditions of our collective labour and the spaces that make it possible.
Programming will include in-depth discussions of the taxation of artist grants, possible pension plans for workers and artists, building and renovating facilities, collective bargaining and organizing, addressing new funding structures, and challenges across the field. We will also share programs of moving image works and close the gathering with a live performance by three incredible expanded cinema artists: Lindsay Mcintyre, Malena Szlam, and Leslie Supnet.
The majority of conference activities will be held at the newly expanded Arts Court in Ottawa.
The preliminary schedule is:
Opening keynote and events: Nov 16, 7pm — 12am
Day 1: 9:30am – 12am
Day 2: 9:30am – 12am
Day 3: 10:00am – 2pm
