The Centre for Art Tapes is pleased to present the 31st Annual Media Art Scholarship Presentation. The scholarship is a mentorship program that provides local artists with the chance to explore an aspect of media art with which they have little to no experience. Scholars receive six months of one-to-one guidance from specially selected mentors, as well as workshops taught by experts in areas such as audio/video production and editing, electronics, and gallery installation. Scholars receive free access to equipment, facilities and staff support.
This year’s exhibition, A Different Place, takes us outside of CFAT to the four open floors of the iconic building which used to house Video Difference. The nostalgia inducing dusty-rose walls will now hold video installations, audio works, web design and electronics. This year’s range of mediums is a testament to the breadth of possibilities of the program. The works deal with themes of memory, autonomy, movement and trauma.
We would like to thank our sponsors for making this program possible: Freeman’s Little New York, Nocturne Art at Night, the RBC Foundation, the Craig Foundation, Canada Council for the Arts, Halifax Regional Municipality, and the Province of Nova Scotia.

Some of the works contain difficult themes and potentially triggering discussions. Gallery attendants will always be present and will have info available on the content of each piece if you wish to read it before viewing.
6086 Quinpool Rd has accessible ground level access. Only the ground floor is wheelchair accessible. Please enter through the right hand door. There is no button to control the door, but an attendant will be beside the door throughout the exhibition.
