We are very excited for our amazing media arts community right now. Several months ago, a steering committee was created to help develop the film and interactive media program under the Cultural Capital of Canada designation for Charlottetown. An independent jury then had the very difficult task of choosing, from a pool of 17 excellent applications, the five new media arts works to be produced . They are as follows:
Jason Arsenault – Exhibition Drive
Millefiore Clarkes – In Between Spaces
Jenna MacMillan – Fine Tuning
JoDee Samuelson – A Brief History of Charlottetown: from the last Ice Age to the Present
Joseph Weale – Landscapers
These projects will be created over the summer to be screened in the autumn. We’re honoured to be a part of this special initiative, and proud of our wonderfully talented media artsists who contribute to this community.
