BIO + CV
Julie Gendron (desiring productions) is an independent digital strategist, creative director, curator and artist working nationally. With over 22 years of experience, Gendron prioritizes arts-focused, design-based and social enterprise organizations to enhance their digital and business efficiencies, build curatorial and audience opportunities and provide digital product and UX design.
She is one half of Manufacturing Entertainment, an artist-run, curatorial and production arts duo working with architectural projections, media-based installations and A/V performance.
As an artist, her choice of mediums is varied and conceptually dependent. She draws inspiration from dissembled technology, participation, sound, land, satire, data, decay, mutation and unpredictability.
Gendron completed her graduate work in the Department of Art, Design and Technology at Concordia University, specializing in Participatory Design. She has received awards and grants from the Japan Media Art Festival, Canariasmediafest (Spain), Centre interuniversitaire des arts mediatiques, Dora and Avi Morrow Award for Excellence in Visual Arts, Creative BC, BC Film, Canada Council for the Arts and British Columbia Arts Council. She has shared her work at various conferences and exhibitions in Canada, Sweden, Iceland, Spain, Japan, Australia and the US.
