Toronto Media Arts Centre

Toronto Media Arts Roundtable

January 16, 6:00 PM

Critical Distance & Media Arts Network of Ontario

In Expansion Space

For the January 2020 Toronto Media Arts Roundtable, MANO and Critical Distance are partnering to frame the conversation on the responsibilities and pressures for artist-run and media art organizations and collectives, along with staff and contractors for the production of historical records. For many artists in Canada entries in festival catalogues or artist-run centre brochures are some of the only responses to their work. Discussions may include questions such as:

  • How are cultural workers and organizations working to address current gaps in critical writing?
  • How can organizations and programming/curatorial staff better steward histories?
  • What is the role of memory institutions?
  • What is being centred and what is excluded in current practices?

This is a free event and all artists and arts workers are welcome to join. Please rsvp at
