EMMEDIA’s mandate emphasizes the diversity of contemporary media art practice.
We support the innovative, challenging work of a variety of artists working in many genres. Our support to media artists extends beyond those working in video art to encompass those exploring diverse forms of time based art including experimental film, installation, documentary, animation, performance, new media, audio, and web based projects. We foster the long term vitality of the Alberta media arts community by providing tools, workshops and production incentive programs. Beyond our extensive support of artists, one of EMMEDIA’s achievements is the ongoing development of a culturally knowledgeable, multi-layered audience.

EMMEDIA is community driven; we respond to the needs and requests of Calgary artists, writers, curators, producers, EMMEDIA members and the interested public at large. In addition, EMMEDIA regularly presents programming and special events devoted to the Electronic Media Arts. We maintain an archive dedicated to Alberta media art (over 800 titles), provide educational and advocacy resources to artists, and offer access to communication resources that assist artists in networking with other media artists and organizations worldwide.
