Ed Video Media Arts Centre404 York Road, Guelph, ON N1E 3H4
In 1975 the Educational Video Creative Community Television project, more commonly known as Ed Video, was initiated by four graduates of the University of Guelph Fine Arts program.
They felt the need, as professional artists, for a community video resource centre. They aimed to provide access to equipment, as well as a catalyst for creative activity in the community. They recognized that most people, especially artists and community groups, had little or no access to the medium. The project was funded initially by a Local Initiatives Program Grant, and had artists teaching creative use of video in Guelph area schools and the wider community.
