The Independent Media Arts Alliance is pleased to announce the appointment of Barbora Racevičiūtė as the new National Director.
Barbora will guide IMAA in its mission to push for structural change with regards to labour and governance and to advocate for equity, anti-oppression and access. Barbora has held roles with various not-for-profit arts organizations and in the academy.
Her previous experiences as Interim Communications and Development Manager at Workman Arts and as Director of Operations with Images Festival have given her a focus on media arts, with a multidisciplinary mandate. She is committed to interdisciplinary partnerships and considers them essential to understanding the emerging priorities of the media arts sector and its overall development.
Barbora has been involved from the sector on the ad-hoc Basic Income Committee to provide resources and support for artists. She cares deeply about the next generation of arts workers and concentrates on building solidarity in the sector and combating labour precarity.
The Independent Media Arts Alliance (IMAA) is a member-driven non-profit national organization working to advance and strengthen the media arts community in Canada. Representing over 100 independent film, video, audio, and new media production, distribution, and exhibition organizations in all parts of the country, the IMAA serves over 16,000 independent media artists and cultural workers.
