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 ingenious and future-bending work of 20 new participants. Selected by the British Council, Somerset House Studios and MUTEK, artists from Argentina, Canada, and the UK, join a series of public-facing discursive, exhibition and performance activities during the festival’s hybrid edition running September 8 – 13, accessible to the world through MUTEK’s online portals. Enriched by its harnessing of different cultures and experiences, AMPLIFY D.A.I fosters a platform for dialogue on access and equality, while also providing career and networking opportunities—and committing resources to elevate and advance the contemporary and dynamic artistic practices of each cohort. More than 80 women have participated in the initiative, which debuted at MUTEK during the same year the festival first achieved gender parity.
