Interval is a short-term artist residency program in digital media set up by Festival Accès Asie and OBORO, creative partners since 1999, to produce and present an artwork. Interval's goal is to support a local artist from the Asian community in the development and dissemination of a new media art project, which may take the form of an installation, a performance, or a public presentation (in person or online). The selected artist will receive an artist fee and a production budget. They will also benefit from OBORO's support in the development of their artwork, thanks to an access to studios and equipment for up to 5 days, as well as occasional assistance from the New Media Lab’s team. Applicants must reside in the greater Montreal area. The selected project will be presented once, on May 14, 2022, as part of OBORO’s programming during Festival Accès Asie.
Founded in 1995, Festival Accès Asie promotes Asian arts, cultures and histories through a diversity of artistic disciplines including the visual arts, dance, theatre, video, film, music, literature, performance, new media and culinary arts. The Festival presents events that feature artists of Asian origin and artists whose work is inspired by Asian arts, cultures and histories.
Founded in 1982 with the conviction that transcultural artistic experiences contribute to the betterment of humankind, OBORO fosters the development of art practices locally, nationally and internationally. OBORO’s sphere of activity encompasses visual and media arts, performing arts, new technologies and emerging practices.
