Mass Culture, in partnership with Gros Morne Summer Music, is proud to host their second Play-Go-Round event with speakers whose life and work is greatly impacted by the question: How do we build capacity for digital artistic practices for creatives who reside in rural and northern areas throughout Canada?
During this event, which will be recorded, they will explore and discuss ideas surrounding digital artistic practices, physical barriers, conceptual barriers, and what the possibilities for the future are.
As a lead up to this event, Todd Hennessey, Holly Cunningham, and Michael Mooney have each developed a thought piece, spurred by their experience and perspectives relating to digital infrastructure in rural and Northern communities. These can be found here: bit.ly/3Gd0fR7
The event, emceed by Thinking Rock Community Arts’ Cassandra Spade will be an enriching exchange, delving even deeper into their commissioned thought pieces through Mass Culture’s Play-Go-Round conversation inspired by the ArtAngel Longplayer project’s Long Conversation format. As audience members, you are invited to join the speakers in exploring the arts sector’s relationship to digital technology and the possibilities it affords to a rural and Northern Canadian perspective.
