Help Ed Video to make ends meet!
Throughout 2021 Ed Video has leaned into the importance of our community. We have helped many artists and arts organizations transition to virtual events by means of live-streaming, pod casting and online exhibitions. Our focus has been firmly placed on artists and their work.
What we do has changed a little and how we do it has changed a lot. Nevertheless, we have successfully re-organized ourselves to continue to meet our mandate. Entirely online, we ran workshops and mentored artists at reduced costs to ensure those with reduced income were able to continue learning. We rented equipment by curbside pickup and provided support for its use virtually and by email. We encouraged research and creation through equipment residencies and production grants. This resulted in an inspiring 200 projects developed through the centre. Although exhibitions were difficult to present and attendance was down from normal, these projects brought us together while we were apart and were exciting and positive experiences for both artists and audiences.
Our reach is small, relative to the other large campaigns for Giving Tuesday, but we do a lot with what we get, and we are incredibly grateful to you for being one of our supporters in any capacity you can manage.
We appreciate any help you can give us with any of these activities. However you choose to participate, through your support you will be empowering the cultural voice of Canadians.
