New Vancouver Works & New Toronto Works
Screening: Friday October 16, 5pm PT/8pm ET
Artist talk: Saturday October 17, 12pm PT/3pm ET
Free/PWYC @

Join Video Out for a partnership with Pleasure Dome (Toronto), New Vancouver Works & New Toronto Works, on Friday October 16th and Saturday October 17th. First up on Friday 5pm PT/8pm ET, watch a double bill of New Vancouver Works & New Toronto Works, two programs that feature recent shorts by emerging and established media artists working in the two respective cities.

Then, on Saturday October 17th, at 12pm PT/3pm ET, tune in for a cross-Canada discussion featuring artists in both programs, moderated by Video Out and Pleasure Dome. This talk will be framed around making and presenting work in the time of the pandemic, as well as the age-old question of East Coast and West Coast sensibilities. This partnership was initiated by Pleasure Dome, and we would like to acknowledge support through the Canada Council for the Arts Touring and Circulation Program. We look forward to sharing these works, and to the conversations that will arise!

Venue Accessibility

VIVO is located in the homelands of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and səl̓ílwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) peoples in a warehouse space at 2625 Kaslo Street south of East Broadway at the end of E 10th. Transit line 9 stops at Kaslo Street on Broadway. From the bus stop, the path is paved, curbless, and on a slight decline. The closest skytrain station is Renfrew Station, which is three blocks south-east of VIVO and has an elevator. From there, the path is paved, curbless, and on a slight incline. There is parking available at VIVO, including wheelchair access parking. There is a bike rack at the entrance. The front entrance leads indoors to a set of 7 stairs to the lobby.

Wheelchair/Walker Access

A wheelchair ramp is located at the west side of the main entrance. The ramp has two runs: the first run is 20 feet long, and the second run is 26 feet. The ramp is 60 inches wide. The slope is 1:12. The ramp itself is concrete and has handrails on both sides. There is an outward swinging door (34 inch width) at the top of the ramp leading to a vestibule. A second outward swinging door (33 inch width) opens into the exhibition space. Buzzers and intercoms are located at both doors to notify staff during regular office hours or events to unlock the doors. Once unlocked, visitors can use automatic operators to open the doors.


There are two all-gender washrooms. One has a stall and is not wheelchair accessible. The other is a single room with a urinal and is wheelchair accessible: the door is 33 inches wide and inward swinging, without automation. The toilet has 11 inch clearance on the left side and a handrail.

To reach the bathrooms from the studio, exit through the double doors and proceed straight through the lobby and down the hall . Turn left, and the two bathrooms will be on your right side. The closest one has a stall and is not wheelchair accessible. The far bathroom is accessible.
