Since launching our platform in 2017, we have collaborated with curators and programmers from across the country to present film and video programs available for free streaming for a limited time. Each program includes a critical curatorial essay that explores the overarching themes and selections. After the free viewing period has expired, we encourage the public to read the essays and rent the works individually.
A digital strategy initiative supported by a grant from the Canada Council for the Arts in 2019, matching funds from the Toronto Arts Council and MITACS Accelerate funding programs as well as many independent programming and content partnerships from 2020–2021.
The primary goal was to broaden access to using the VUCAVU platform by art organizations beyond our 8 founding partners and to diversify the ways we can serve the Canadian arts community and their audiences.
