Centre For Art Tapes 35th Anniversary Screening - 9PM

For the Centre For Art Tape’s (CFAT) 25th Anniversary we produced a book published through Pottersfield Press. Within its pages, members reminisced and discussed the many aspects of CFAT’s mandate. This included the early days of production and projects such as Audio for Artists and New Tools for Imaging; the establishment of the Scholarship Program; the exciting and productive gay and lesbian years; the feminist input; the emphasis on accessibility for minority groups such as the black and indigenous communities: these were the various inspirations that contributed to CFAT’s audio and video production and its growing contribution to Halifax’s and the region’s cultural innovation.

Now with the 35th Anniversary, all these contributions plus the intervening ten years will be honoured by a screening that will include all these aspects, plus of course the technological challenge of these years as the media world changed from analogue to digital and the adding of new media to the mandate. Now that CFAT has moved to a brand new facility on Gottingen Street and therefore has returned to its North End roots, the challenge of the 35th Anniversary screening will be to highlight all these many communities and programs and to give them a weight worthy of their contribution to CFAT’s ongoing possibilities.

Location: Neptune Scotiabank Studio Theatre, 1593 Argyle Street

Admission: $10/$7
