Video Pool is happy to announce that the Fund-Program is alive and well, albeit with a few small changes. Throughout its long and varied history, this program has helped spur on many exciting media art projects from an impressive list of artists, and in some cases even helping launch vibrant careers!
Scott Leroux Fund for Media Arts Exploration
Scott Leroux was a unique and creative force during the time he spent making artwork at Video Pool Media Arts Centre. He had boundless energy and an ability to bring people together around his and others’ acts of expression. Suddenly, and sadly, Scott passed away on October 29, 2016. Video Pool is honoured to announce that his legacy will continue through a fund created by the Leroux family in Scott’s name that offers $1,500 for a one-month residency in our new Poolside Gallery. Artists will produce new work and are encouraged to spend this time experimenting and pushing the boundaries of Media Arts, using Poolside as a ‘living laboratory’ where work can be explored, developed, exhibited, and discussed.
Deadline: Monday, October 15, 2018
