The AMPLIFY Digital Arts Initiative Report 2018-2020 describes three years of AMPLIFY Digital Arts Initiative (D.A.I) and provides an overview and inventory of its activities and outcomes. It contains measurements related to gender visibility at partner events, and presents data that evidences positive change in the number of women participating in public showcases. The effects of the program on the cohort of artists is likewise measured with quantitative questionnaires and qualitative feedback related to experience, professional development and connections, skills, knowledge and confidence.

Launched in 2018, 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.
