About FAVA Staff

At FAVA we have a small, capable and knowledgeable staff. Our tasks are to nurture our membership, advocate on behalf of our artists, and support the larger cultural community. In Calgary, four media arts production centres serve the equivalent of FAVA’s constituency here in Edmonton. This makes us unique, even in the landscape of singular and unique cooperatives. We’re IT. We’re the ones in the community committed to educating, training, supporting and promoting media artists in Northern Alberta… and we’re proud and honoured to do it.

FAVA is doing a great job, but we need the community’s support to continue this success. We would like to thank all our funders for their generous past support and we look forward to our continued partnership in the promising future.
