Video Pool Media Arts Centre announces new Executive Director

emma-hendrixWINNIPEG, MB (September 28, 2016) — It is with great pleasure the board of directors of Video Pool Media Arts Centre announces the hiring of Emma Hendrix to the role of Executive Director of the organization.

Hendrix comes to Video Pool with 13 years of experience at VIVO Media Arts, a Vancouver-based artist-run centre, where he helped reestablish it as a cornerstone of Canadian arts, leading it into the frontline of nationwide discussions covering Social Purpose Real Estate, arts investment, and media arts production, presentation and preservation in Canada.

Throughout his career, he has demonstrated a diverse set of skills that include strategic business planning, arts and capital funding, community relations, and organizational planning across a range of sectors including arts, entertainment, and not-for-profit. In Vancouver, Hendrix developed, secured, and led a $250,000 renovation project for an arts organization, secured $2.3 million for the purchase of a new arts facility, and helped launch the development of a Provincial Art Service Organization for media arts. He is a strong advocate for experimental practices and community development.

Hendrix, a practicing media artist, sound designer and experimental composer, also brings with him his partner Julie Gendron (Media artist and digital strategist for the arts) and their 7-year-old son.

With his impressive qualifications, mounting collection of personal and professional achievements, and growing recognition for what he’s done for media arts on a national scale, Video Pool is pleased to welcome this excellent fit to the organization and are looking forward to the exciting new chapter that lies ahead.
