A Noisy November for the AMPLIFY Digital Arts Initiative, three free online showcases from Somerset House Studios, Noviembre Electrónico, and MUTEK Montreal. Anchored in the UK, Canada and Argentina, the AMPLIFY D.A.I cohort launches into a bustling month of residency, public performances and exhibitions! The third cycle of this dynamic, interdisciplinary program for women-identifying digital artists working in the realms of sound, visual and immersive storytelling has proven resilient throughout these challenging months. Our partners have all responded with agile and ingenious pivots to online and virtual platforms in the wake of the global pandemic. There are three ways, from three different continents in November, to catch the work of this exceptional cohort of artists.
Launched in 2018, the AMPLIFY Digital Arts Initiative has gathered 80 women-identifying artists and professionals representing 8 different nationalities, across 3 continents to build an active network of artists and professionals working in the 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.

AMPLIFY D.A.I is an initiative of the British Council in partnership with MUTEK Montréal, MUTEK Buenos Aires and Somerset House Studios in the UK. The programme is supported by Canada Council for the Arts and Fundación Williams.
