Over the last three years Video Pool Media Arts Centre has been holding online screenings three to four times a year, that allow us to share the video gems that are part of our archive of video that spans over 30 years. The videos are made available to the public on our website for 48 hours.
For 2016 we are seeking curators for 3 online screenings. Curators will be responsible for choosing 3 videos from the Video Pool Media Arts Centre Catalogue, and write a brief text (2 paragraphs) about the program they have put together. Curators will receive $150 for their time.
Video Pool is responsible for providing the support of our Distribution Coordinator to help the curator access videos they would like to preview, pay artist fees, do promotion of the screening, and set up the videos on our website.
The themes for the screening are open, however we would like the first screening to be in conjunction with International Women’s Day on March 8, 2016. The following screenings would take place in August and November 2016.
Please submit a letter of interest including a subject you would like to research and CV to:
