AMAAS is an umbrella organization that promotes, supports, and advocates for Alberta media arts.
AMAAS’s vision is that all media artists in Alberta will have access to support, collaboration, and funding to develop and exhibit diverse and vibrant multidisciplinary media arts projects.
AMAAS serves media artists and organizations through advocacy, development opportunities and connecting media artists and media art organizations across the Province. Programs include educational and networking opportunities at our biannual conference & symposiums, publications, awards, sponsorship, and artist commissions. Since its inception, AMAAS has been governed by a volunteer group of directors representing the media arts in Alberta.
