More About Us
AMES has been investing in the imaginations and skill sets of up-and-coming media artists, digital activists and creative change makers for over two decades.
Acknowledging our shared territories
AMES is a bi-regional organization. Many of our projects take place on xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) and Sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh) territories, and that’s where lots of our collaborators and participants hail from too. But the birth place of AMES is the unsurrendered territory of the Penelakut people, and 12 other Hul’quim speaking Nations who hold rights and responsibilities in and around the place that’s come to be known as Galiano Island.
