Current Projects

A collective study program and collaborative space for artists to radically imagine culture and society as they should be.

The Sourdough Residency Program is a paid incubator for creative exploration and peer-learning around themes of shared urgencies in society, in order to re-imagine a more inclusive future from an artistic point of view. Each program cycle invites initiatives led by historically marginalized artists.


Established in 2018, Sourdough is powered by Artengine and managed by Mariam Zohouri, Remco Volmer and Zainab Muse.

An aggregator of Canadian arts content assembled from YouTube

The CanCon AV Index (CAVI) is a collection of over 33,000 YouTube videos from 500+ cultural organizations receiving government funding and operating across the Indigenous territories we now call Canada.


Click on the link to go to directly to the searchable index or check out our collection of resource pages about the project.


Using a collection of open data tools and available plugins for Chrome and WordPress, we hacked together a resource for cultural professionals, researchers and students. The CAVI fences off sections of YouTube and presents it to you without their visual clutter and algorithmic interference.

Remixed is a deep listening experience that explores how we make change in our lives, communities, and world. Each listener receives their own playlist of music, narrative prompts and true stories of transformation from all over the globe, personalized for them by our algorithmic DJ and experienced via our web app. Remixed brings listeners to community members from all over the globe sharing sharing intimate stories of change. Each playlist evokes a sense of place, space, and presence. Weaving the personal with the collective, Remixed invites listeners to tune in to how change moves through their own lives. Remixed is a hybrid performance that can be experienced remotely or in-person.


This project is the latest manifestation of Trophy, an evolving and award-winning creative investigation into individual and collective change rooted in the personal lived experiences of communities across the globe. For more information about Trophy, please visit our website.
