Struts Media Centre (FKA Faucet Media) aims to facilitate all forms of media art from analogue to digital practices. We have an extensive collection of professional media art equipment and resources and offer ongoing hands-on training, guidance, and mentorship through a number of initiatives:
EQUIPMENT RENTALS & ONGOING TRAINING
Our equipment rates are based on a model of accessibility to encourage artists at all stages of their career. One-on-one training from our production manager is available for those who need it. Members are also able to take advantage of our “volunteer for gear” policy and exchange volunteer hours for use of the equipment.
MEDIA ART WORKSHOPS LED BY VISITING ARTISTS
Struts promotes the development of artists’ work through a wide ranging suite of media art workshops, facilitated by visiting artists. These workshops are designed for professional artists at all stages of their careers.
THE ADHOC WORKSHOP SERIES
A series of informal workshops intended to introduce our members to new equipment and resources as our Struts Media equipment acquisitions and facilities continue to evolve.
