A bold proposal launched in 2018 to connect women-identifying artists working in digital arts and electronic music across the Americas and the UK—AMPLIFY D.A.I returns to MUTEK Montréal to showcase the work of new and existing cohort members. Artists from Argentina, Brazil, Canada, and the UK, join a series of public-facing discursive, exhibition and performance activities during the festival’s hybrid edition running August 24 - September 5, 2021 accessible to the world through MUTEK’s online portals. 

AMPLIFY D.A.I is a program of the British Council in partnership with Canada Council for the Arts, and with MUTEK Montréal, MUTEK Buenos Aires and Somerset House Studios in the UK. The program has gathered 80 women artists, representing 8 different nationalities, across 3 continents, to build an active network of creators and professionals working in the electronic music, digital arts, sound and immersive storytelling sectors in Canada, Latin America and the UK. Harnessing different cultures and experiences, AMPLIFY D.A.I fosters a platform for dialogue on gender equity and commits resources to career and capacity building activities, peer exchanges and opportunities for cohort participants to showcase their work in the context of dynamic, contemporary festivals, events and residencies.
