For our 2013 installment, we did our best to bring some of the worlds most innovative artists, musicians, thinkers, and works to New Forms. We hosted two world premiers including Jeff Mills: STAR PEOPLE and 1024 Architecture’s Hypercube, presented over 40 media art works and electronic music performers and hosted instrument pioneer Donald Buchla along with an exhibit of his creations. We also partnered up with a number of seminal Artist Run Centres and educational institutions, embarked on a city wide poster campaign, and sold out the festival!
None of these successes would be possible without your support of the New Forms Media Society. Events such as New Forms are incredibly important to Vancouver, and we hope our collective work has a positive impact on not only the community surrounding the festival, but the city of Vancouver as a whole. We would like to thank you for attending the festival, supporting the festival or helping spread the word. We would also like to thank the many volunteers, staff, and supporters for their involvement in New Forms. The festival would not be possible without all of your engagement!
