30 YEARS 1981-2011

In 1981, SAW Gallery purchased a few items of video production equipment. An artist was commissioned to create a piece of video art and SAW Video was born. Now 30 years old, we continue to support artists through a broad range of programs and services, from equipment access, training, grants, and programming.

SAW Video Association is an artist-run centre committed to supporting ground-breaking artistic production, presentation and programming of independent media art.

Join with us to celebrate 30 years of fostering independent media art in Ottawa!
