Amplify is an ambitious initiative that connects an active network of women-identified artists and curators working in the digital arts and immersive storytelling sectors in Argentina, Canada, Mexico, Venezuela, Peru and the UK. Connecting different cultures and experiences, Amplify activates a platform for dialogues on access, inclusion and gender equality between local and international industry professionals.
Amplify took place for the first time during MUTEK Montréal 2018 and afterwards many of the participants involved in this project have embarked on a transcontinental circulation throughout 2018-2019, with activities in Buenos Aires, that continued in Mexico City and finally reconnecting in the UK at Somerset House Studios.
Amplify is led by the British Council, MUTEK and Somerset House Studios, with the support of the Canada Council for the Arts. In Argentina it also has the support of SKYY Vodka and its #ConectaSKYY platform.
