ABOUT TRINITY SQUARE VIDEO
Trinity Square Video is a space to re-imagine media arts.
Trinity Square’s activities are guided by our goal to increase our members’ and audiences’ understanding and imagination of what media arts practices can be. Trinity Square strives to create supportive environments, encouraging artistic and curatorial experimentation that challenge medium specificity through education, production and presentation supports.
Over the past three years, Trinity Square has increased the scope and profile of all its programs, focusing on three priorities: 1) promoting an expanded definition of media arts; 2) promoting the meaningful engagement of diverse voices in all levels of our operations; and 3) supporting and nurturing the production of new works by artists and curators. These goals are complemented by our increased commitment to thinking critically about how Trinity Square, as an institution, can challenge structural forms of dispossession, which, over the next three years, will be anchored in our commitment to learn and practice ways of divesting from white supremacy.
