Mass Culture is an arts support organization that strives to harness the power of research to learn and generate new insights, enabling the arts community to be strategic, focused and adaptive.
Three rounds of compelling exchanges on digital artistic practices, physical barriers, conceptual barriers, and what the possibilities for the future are.
Mass Culture, in partnership with Gros Morne Summer Music, is proud to have host their second of three Play-Go-Round events with speakers whose life and work is greatly impacted by the question: How do we build capacity for digital artistic practices for creatives who reside in rural and northern areas throughout Canada?
During this event, which was recorded, we explored and discussed ideas surrounding digital artistic practices, physical barriers, conceptual barriers, and what the possibilities for the future are.
As a lead up to this event, Todd Hennessey, Holly Cunningham, and Michael Mooney each developed a thought piece, spurred by their experience and perspectives relating to digital infrastructure in rural and Northern communities.
The event, emceed by Thinking Rock’s Cassandra Spade, was an enriching exchange, delving even deeper into the speakers’ commissioned thought pieces through Mass Culture’s Play-Go-Round conversation inspired by the ArtAngel Longplayer project’s Long Conversation format. The event concluded with an artistic windup from graphic recorder Devon Kerslake.
