New Adventures in Sound Art (NAISA) invites artists of all ages and nationalities to submit works on the theme Remote Connections for consideration in New Adventures in Sound Art’s 2023 programming.

The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic was strongly evident in the ways that people connected or lost connections across long distances, whether to local or distant soundscapes, or between people near or far. NAISA would like to consider works that draw attention to these remote connections and how they have impacted us.

For its 2023 programming, NAISA is interested in submissions of work related to the theme Remote Connections and creative ways that this theme can be explored. Individual interpretations or variations on the theme are encouraged, but should be realized with sound as the primary component. NAISA would also like to encourage artists to submit works for performance, interactive sound installations and sound sculptures for indoor and outdoor contexts, fixed media audio or audio-visual works, livestreaming and any emerging digital formats that include sound as a primary element.

                  Seneca College is seeking individuals from diverse background to serve as advisors for a new program in development that develops young talent in emerging forms of photography, imaging, and visual content creation.

                  Background: Over its history, changes to the field of photography have been occurring with each new development in technology. Today, imagery is everywhere, and is a significant part of people’s daily lives. At the same time, every person with a smart phone can be a photographer, video maker, designer, and other content creator. The ease and proliferation of advanced mobile technology, along with continuously sophisticated artificial intelligence tools, enable individuals to produce images which, to many, are of “good enough” quality. While the skills of professional photographers are still in demand, the landscape for these for-hire services have changed. Social media, AR+VR, data visualization, drone, GoPro footage, 360-degree, AI image generation, sensor-based imaging, projection mapping, mobile app production tools, and other emerging technologies take up increasingly more space in the media diet of most creators and audiences.

                  Seneca’s new program would leverage its experience in photography education towards a wider range of applications and technologies for such practitioners in order to provide the graduate with tools and knowledge that enable increased forms of creative expression and the number of places they find demand
