Digital Infrastructure in Rural and Northern Communities

Play-Go-Rounds

Three rounds of compelling exchanges on digital artistic practices, physical barriers, conceptual barriers, and what the possibilities for the future are.

Knowledge process

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.

These thought pieces, created by the event’s content experts, provide insights into their areas of expertise within the realm of digital infrastructure in rural and Northern communities.
