Ed Video Media Arts Centre is a charitable artist-run centre, dedicated to fostering the creation, exhibition, and appreciation of media arts. Since our founding in 1976, we have helped our community create technology-based art projects that represent the diversity, spirit, and viewpoints of the people in our region. We achieve this by offering skill-enriching workshops at a variety of experience levels, curating exhibitions both on and off site, and renting out production equipment at affordable rates for users at all levels.

Ed Video serves as a vital cultural center, fostering lasting connections between artists, audiences, and organizations. We embrace our role as an established institution in a city known for its vibrant creativity. Above all, we are committed to harnessing the educational potential of media arts for creators and viewers of all ages, while promoting understanding and engagement with contemporary technology-based art.
