Documenting Engagement
Description: 

For three weeks in the winter of 2003/04, nine mid-career Canadian artists worked with a group of senior artists and media producers as part of Documenting Engagement: A Community Artists Media Institute. Together this group investigated the practice of community-based arts and explored the potential of digital video as a means of documenting the aesthetics of engagement inherent in this art form. After taking part in a series of discussions, workshops, and screenings, participating artists each produced a short documentary video highlighting an aspect of their practice.
