PAM (Platform for Audiovisual and Media arts) has grown out of a diverse assembly of organisations working with audiovisual, sound, or media arts. Today, it also includes a broader community of individuals, artists, curators, producers, and organisations active in these fields. PAM aims to exchange knowledge, tools, and resources by meeting regularly and discussing shared concerns.

This edition of PAM will be hosted by kunstencentrum nona and will focus specifically on the field of audiovisual arts and film. The needs and hurdles faced by artists working with film and video will take centre stage in roundtable discussions. We will gather to share our questions, concerns and trajectories in the field of audiovisual arts. On this occasion the artists of Brussels-based production and distribution platform Auguste Orts, curators of the 10th edition of the Contour Biennial of Moving Images, will give an introduction about their curatorial practice and the biennial. Participating audiovisual artists of the biennial, filmmakers and students join us to discuss our and their experiences, challenges and practices.
