1) Art's Birthday Celebration
January 15 - 17, 2012
New Adventures in Sound Art will once again participate in the Arts Birthday celebrations this year. Happy One Million and Forty-nineth Birthday, Art! NAISA's Art's Birthday all-day event will run on January 15 in the NAISA space and on January 17 on-line. Check the January NAISA Sound Channel or the web-site www.naisa.ca in December for a full-listing of free performances and hands-on art activities for the entire family.
2) NAISA is pleased to announce ...
NAISA has been awarded capital funding from the Ontario Trillium Foundation, an agency of the Government of Ontario, to provide capital upgrades to the NAISA Space and purchase equipment in order to both create a larger installation and seating area for concerts and workshops provided to the public and to school classes and for equipment upgrades to make these experiences by audiences and students a memorable one. The additional equipment will also add to NAISA's ability to provide more dissemination opportunities for artists including the launch of a permanent web-radio station, NAISA Radio. These upgrades to the NAISA space augment already existing funding for upgrades provided by the Canada Council for the Arts during its current fiscal year.
3) NAISA Youth Initiative Updates
The NAISA youth education initiative is targeted toward youth at high schools, arts centers and community centers and facilitates the creation of new sound art works by youth through collaboration during hands-on workshops including: assembling a sound art instrument (the NAISAtron created by Rob Cruickshank), making art with sound, making radio and exploring the soundscape. To date, NAISA has produced 22 residencies in Toronto, Kingston, Ottawa and Mississauga. If you are a teacher or run a community centre and are interested in booking workshops or collaborating with NAISA, email email@example.com.
