Hotbox – A Saw Video Ottawa Summer Social on August 11, 2011
When the word Hotbox comes up, I think of something “illegal”.
That word is not a bad thing, since it happens to be a event for Saw Video‘s 30th Anniversary.
Really Saw Video has been around for 30 years!??
With that this big multi-disciplinary summer social and fundraiser runs from 6pm-11pm.
It’s pay what you can to get in or it’s $3 with 1 raffle ticket or $5 with 2 raffle tickets.
Here is the details of this event.
The first of several anniversary events coming later this fall, HOTBOX celebrates SAW Video at a time when the media arts have become a ubiquitous part of our global culture.
Whether someone is capturing video on their mobile phone, or recording a sound installation on their laptop, the media arts are no longer on the fringes, but are an ever-expanding facet of our digital lives.
They are bringing together some of the city’s best VJs, DJs, restaurants and bands, to highlight SAW Video’s award-winning programs and raise a glass to the thriving Ottawa artistic community.
