EManimenteur – Noel Bégin

In the summer of 2010, EMMEDIA introduced the EManimenteur position. As a pilot project, the EManimenteur is an in-house contract residency, that interacts with staff, members, and artist-producers working on site. The role is a nurturing and inspiring one, where the resident offers critical analysis and improvement. This will also aid in increasing the critical feedback and support offered in our Production Access Programs, which support the creation of new works. The project also offers the Board and management insights into better achieving EMMEDIA’s mandate, whether in terms of visioning, or more practical suggestions regarding operations, programming and production activity. EMMEDIA Gallery & Production Society gratefully acknowledges the support of The National Film Board of Canada for making this program possible.

EMMEDIA is pleased to welcome Noel Bégin as our new EManimenteur for 2011! We look forward to working with Noel in the coming months to enhance and assist EMMEDIA artists in developing a deeper understanding of media arts practice. EM Members are encouraged to get in touch with Noel to develop conceptual and critical aspects of their practice, either through studio visits or project consultations. Please contact EMMEDIA at programming@emmedia.ca or 403.263.2833 to make arrangements to meet with him. Noel Begin will be with EMMEDIA till the end of October, so feel free to visit again and again!
