Welcome to I AM COOP
Greetings and welcome to I AM CO-OP.
We are currently engaged in the Virtual I AM CO-OP Project - a collaboration between the Independent Artists Cooperative and Rock Can Roll Media Collective. Both IAC and RCR are artist-run Newfoundland based collectives comprised of artists working across disciplines.
The Virtual I AM COOP Project is focused on experimenting with the creation, presentation and interaction potentials available to artists in virtual spaces. Currently we are working in the virtual worlds of Second Life on Odyssey Island. Odyssey Island is a simulator that provides space, services and support to artists working in SL. It is a great place to be. Visit us anytime at SLURL Odyssey (10, 202, 24), or search I AM COOP. Thanks to Sugar Seville and Odyssey for all their support with this project.
Currently playing on our screens is the short documentary "Rock School for Girls". This workshop series for girls and women of all ages was created by Cherie Pyne, Rhiannon Thomas and Liz Pickguard in 2004, as was the video. This video documents the first "Rock School for Girls", a creative workshop series hosted by the Independent Artists Cooperative in collaboration with terminus 1525 and the girls independent rock league (g.i.r.l.). we will be changing our hosted video every week so do drop in and check them all out. next week - documentation from our first live presentations.
