    presentation/panel submissions. If accepted all people involved in the

  • If you submit a panel idea, NXNE expects that you will be able to commit
    the time necessary to help organize the panel, including finding panelists
    and moderators.

CFC Media Lab at HTMlles 2010

Jacqueline Nuwame, Sr. Training Programs Manager at the CFC Media Lab, had the honour of speaking at last week’s HTMlles Festival of Media Art and Networked Practices 2010 in Montreal.

Founded in 1997 and produced by Studio XX, the HTMlles Festival of Media Art and Networked Practices explores various facets of digital technology and the web as a medium for the creation and exhibition of women’s digital artworks. The festival occupies the singular position of being one of the only Quebecois and Canadian events entirely dedicated to the promotion and dissemination of independent media art, its particularity also being emphasized by its feminist approach, concerns and engagements.

Also featured at the festival was First Person Digital, produced in partnership with the NFB, which featured some amazing female-only work.

Take a peek at these other great projects:

CFC Media Lab to Participate in Net Change Week, June 7-11

netchangeweek20102
Net Change Week, June 7-11, 2010

Net Change Week
(www.netchangeweek.ca) Powered by MaRS will be June 7-11, 2010 held at MaRS Discovery District: 101 College St, Toronto.

Net Change Week will highlight Toronto’s leading edge activity in social technology and social change. This is much more than a social media conference. Technology is capable of taking a local social innovation to scale, across the country or worldwide. Through training, workshops, labs and public discussions, Net Change Week will provide participants with knowledge they need today, and then broaden the conversation to what we can expect in the future.

Now, I know you’re saying to yourself, “Sounds exciting, but how is the CFC Media Lab involved?”

bar1

  • Current CFC Media Lab Telus Interactive Art & Entertainment Program Residents will participate in The Future Lab.
    WHEN: Projects will be pre-selected on Thursday, June 10. Teams will have less than 48hrs to formulate the game plan for realizing the idea out in the world. In front of a live audience, the lab solutions will be presented and a winner chosen by a panel of judges on Friday, June 11 from 2:30p – 5p.
ABOUT THE FUTURE LAB: This lab provides a unique opportunity to workshop solutions to systemic social or environmental problems. Passionate about making change but unsure where to start? Here’s your chance to suggest an idea – or a “wicked problem,” and collaborate with a room of experts to create solutions. As team leader, you must demonstrate the capacity (either as organizational or company support, or individual commitment as an entrepreneur) to realize the solution after The Future Lab.

  • Seed (visit: seedcollective.org) Prototype* from the Telus Interactive Art & Entertainment Program will be on display for everyone to play with.
    WHEN: Wednesday, June 9, 2010 from 9a – 5p.

ABOUT: Through the use of sound and imagery, users create and populate a forest together, by dialing a particular number on the screen, each participant receives a “seed” on the public screen.

Seed explores the convergence of rich media and wireless technology in the creation of a collaborative and evolving work of art. Through sound and imagery, users create and populate a forest together. By dialing a particular number on the screen, each participant receives a “seed” on the public screen. By using the keypad on the cell phone audiences have the ability to grow their seeds, choose the type of trees they want to plant, and change their texture and color.
