AMPLIFY D.A.I is an exciting initiative dedicated to empowering women in digital arts and practises to enlighten, embolden and contribute to the current cultural shift around inclusivity and gender issues.

AMPLIFY D.A.I is an ambitious international initiative connecting an active network of women-identified artists, and practitioners working in the digital arts; electronic music, virtual reality, augmented reality and immersive storytelling sectors in Argentina, Canada, Peru and the UK. 

Working with Somerset House Studios and MUTEK across the Americas: The British Council support an international cohort of female practitioners to build lasting connections with the Americas and UK network, develop a stronger community and challenge male dominated discourse and practice within these spaces, whilst forging new ones.

AMPLIFY D.A.I has connected female identifying artists in the UK, Canada, Argentina, Peru, and Mexico, providing them with access to workshops, talks and opportunities to showcase their practise to international audiences.

In 2019 the AMPLIFY D.A.I artists and curators took part in international residencies in London, Montreal, Lima and Buenos Aires.
