The CRES Media Arts Committee (MAC) is dedicated to serving, supporting, and building on the sound art and experimental audio community in Vancouver as well as supporting audio artists from around the world. The focus on the program is local and Canadian sound artists; however, proposals from international applicants will be considered.

MAC is run from Studio B at Vancouver Co-operative Radio, located in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside. The program offers artists and members the opportunity to borrow professional audio equipment. The studio has the latest version of Pro Tools as well as other audio mixing and editing software and hardware that is necessary for studio use. MAC offers a Sound Artist in Residence program for emerging sound artists, an Audio Art Commissioning series, and a variety of workshops and events with experienced guest and in station facilitators.

The activities of MAC are made possible through the generous support of the Canada Council for the Arts, as well as the membership of CFRO 100.5 FM Coop Radio. We acknowledge the support of the Canada Council for the Arts, which last year invested $153 million to bring the arts to Canadians throughout the country.

Nous remercions le Conseil des arts du Canada de son soutien. L’an dernier, le Conseil a investi 153 millions de dollars pour mettre de l’art dans la vie des Canadiennes et des Canadiens de tout le pays.
