Artengine - Ottawa  Business & Services
* Report this listing 
Overview | Location


Incorporated as a non-profit artist-run centre in 1996, Artengine strives to promote accessibility of technological tools to the local and regional community. Artengine has always provided members, artists, and other centres access to services, shared knowledge, and technical assistance in the creation of artworks.

In 1999, Artengine created the Artlist, its most significant point of public access and the oldest cultural mailing list in the Outaouais region. Serving both the Francophone and Anglophone art communities, the Artlist maintains a subscription base of up to 1500 email addresses. In 2008, the Artlist was incorporated into the new Artengine website. A customizable on-line events calendar was built onto the existing service to build on the networking capacity of this important regional service.

Over the years the organization has engaged in a wide variety of programming including exhibitions, both online and in locally-based galleries, artistic residencies, performance series, workshops, lectures, artist talks and master classes. Many of these activities are collaborative efforts between Artengine and other cultural institutions, from the Magnetic North Theatre Festival to the National Gallery of Canada. These collaborations have strengthened the organization's access to resources while increasing the exposure and awareness of the electronic arts across all disciplines.

Artengine has contributed custom scripting and programming to the open source projects PureData and GridFlow, which are visual programming platforms for real-time audio and video processing. Artengine continues to receive recognition from the international open source community with regards to these projects, and has been an active contributor, as presenter and host, to both International PureData conventions (in Graz, Austria in 2004, and in Montreal, Quebec in 2007).

With the help of a grant from the Trillium Foundation in 2005, Artengine evolved from a solely virtual space to include a physical one as well. This organizational evolution reinforced Artengine's role as a central hub for all artists impacted by the electronic arts in the Outaouais. Currently, Artengine is housed in the City of Ottawa's Arts Court facility, positioning it in a unique place for securing an important role within the cultural community as it begins its next stage of development.

Artengine's recent history has been defined by a significant transformation of the organization's capacity, including a new staffing structure, centralized office, significant on-line presence, and a modular Laboratory for production and presentation use.

In addition to the development of its organizational infrastructure, Artengine also continued to create a wide variety of production and dissemination oriented programming which cultivates the unique position of electronic art within the media arts.
