Somerset House Studios partners with MUTEK and the British Council to host ten female-identifying artists and electronic producers working across the digital arts in Canada, Argentina, Peru and the UK. Connecting different cultures and experiences, Amplify is a platform for dialogue on access, inclusion and gender equality between local and international industry professionals. Amplify took place for the first time during MUTEK Montréal in 2018, followed by editions at MUTEK in Buenos Aires and Mexico City.
Reconnecting in the UK at Somerset House Studios, ten artists will become Somerset House Studios residents for a week, culminating in a weekend of activity June 7 and 8. The residency focuses on deepening understanding of the international digital arts field, as well as reinforcing and expanding this burgeoning network of artists and producers for future projects and collaboration. Two nights of performance and discussion will close the week, introducing some of the Americas best talent to the UK for the first time.
