Send + Receive: A Festival of Sound
In 1998, Send + Receive (Winnipeg) was founded upon the suggestion of jake moore, who also named it, and with the support of Video Pool Media Arts Centre through a project conceived by Robert Sauvey. Send + Receive would not exist without them. From 1998-2004 I was fortunate enough to be the director of Send + Receive. In that time, Send + Receive presented the work of numerous local, national and international artists. Don Bargenda, Deanna Radford, Tom Kohut, Ted Turner, Nadin Gilroy and many others were integral to the festival's survival and cohesion until crys cole started guiding it to it's present state.
Send + Receive continues to program innovative and exciting sound art and avant-garde music.
