About the Presenters:
Lisa Wolfin is the Director of the annual Art!Vancouver International Art Fair, Western Canada’s international contemporary art fair showcasing the artwork of galleries and artists from Canada and around the world.
Founded by a group of Pan Asian filmmakers, artists and community organizers, Cinevolution Media Arts Society is committed to bringing contemporary migrant experiences into the global conversation through film and media arts while challenging conventional definitions of identity. Based in the Lower Mainland, Cinevolution nurtures the decentralization of art while forging new connections among artists and academics to the community. Through a variety of professional and community programs, we aspire to foster media literacy, cultivate creativity, and stimulate critical discourse and new ideas. Cinevolution Media Arts Society hosts a variety of events and workshops throughout the year, including the annual Digital Carnival during the Richmond World Festival. A combination of interactive installations, immersive video projections, virtual reality experiences, and more, Digital Carnival is a multimedia extravaganza suitable for all ages.
