Collaboration and Resistance: Towards a Network of Feminist Festivals in Media Arts


Discussion with NOVA XX (Bruxelles), Refresh (New York) and Studio XX / HTMlles (Montréal)
Saturday, November 3rd, 2018
1 pm – 2:30 pm
At OBORO (4001 Berri, 2nd floor)

Over the past two years, two new feminist media arts festivals have emerged. Studio XX celebrates this by inviting curators Lola Martinez (Refresh, New York) and Stéphanie Pécourt (Nova XX, Brussels) to present their initiatives. Julie Alary Lavallée, general coordinator of Studio XX and HTMlles Festival, will engage in a discussion with them about various issues related to the specific mandates of the three festivals. Motivated by a common desire for collaboration and resistance, they will discuss, among others, the following question: how to set up a critical and collaborative network for a better representation of feminist communities in the media arts industries?
