Allison Moore is an artist, educator and cultural operator. Originally from Vancouver Island she is based in Montreal and has produced projects in Brazil, Cuba, Australia, and the UK.  Allison achieved a BFA degree with Honors in Interdisciplinary Arts and Video Production at the University of Concordia in 2005. She has since developed projects in video, animation and interactive computing as an invited artist at Studio XX, OBORO and the Society of Arts and Technology in Montreal.

Karine Savard designs film posters since 2006. Her poster work was awarded many national and international prizes. In her practice outside of the cinematographic industry, she appropriates the presentation mechanisms of publicity in order to produce urban interventions that address current issues related to the transformation of work in a post-industrial era. She is particularly interested in questions related to the divide between manual and intellectual work, the concept of the division of labor and its recognition within the capitalist system and the intervention of aesthetic judgments. Besides her furtive interventions in the past years, her work was presented at the Leonard & Bina Ellen Gallery in 2016. She is currently pursuing a Ph. D. in Études et pratiques des arts at Université du Québec à Montréal. She received a scholarship from the Fonds de recherche du Québec – Société et culture.
