Ticket sales support the Media Arts Scholarship Program
The Centre for Art Tapes is very pleased to present Out of the Centre: CFAT’s 2013/14 Media Arts Scholarship Screening. The Scholarship Program, now 25 years old, assists local media artists through mentorship and training to create work in a medium in which they have little to no experience. During the Program, Scholars receive advice from a CFAT Mentor assigned to them as well as access to facilities, equipment, and workshops.
2013/14 Scholarship artists are: Greig Oldford, Becky Welter-Nolan, Veronica Simmonds, Kira Daube, Angela Glanzmann, Chelsea Gutzman, Dustin Harvey, Ashley Hicks, Véronique MacKenzie, and Stephanie Young. Ticket sales from the event go towards the Media Arts Scholarship; keeping it alive and making it better than ever. This year’s screening will include animation, video work and the presentation of projects based around electronics and installation. Disparately themed, the projects touch on the human experience and our interaction with each other and our environment.
We would like to recognize the 2013/14 Mentors who helped our Scholars along the way: Luckas Cardona, Becka Barker, Eva Madden-Hagen, Lukas Pearse, James MacSwain, Stephen Kelly, Lukas Steinman, Peter Dykhuis, Ariella Pahlke, and Martha Stiegman. Other Scholarship Program instructors and tutors included: Chuck Clark, Tim Tracey, Nathan Ryan, Greg Vanslyke, and Will Vandermeulen.
CFAT’s Media Arts Scholarship Program could not happen without the financial support of the National Film Board, RBC Emerging Artists Project, the Province of Nova Scotia, Film & Creative Industries Nova Scotia, Arts Nova Scotia, the Canada Council for the Arts, and partnership this year with Out East Film Festival. We are continuously grateful for the opportunity to support media artists in Nova Scotia and beyond.
