The first edition of Conversations is with Vancouver-based curator, Alissa Firth-Eagland.

Alissa is currently the Director/Curator of Media Art at Western Front. The interview with Alissa covered topics ranging from web 2.0, to relationship-building with artists, to advice for young curators. This interview, the first in the series of e-books that will be released here, is intended to become part of a larger conversation. Comments on the topics raised in this series of e-books are welcomed, and responses may be collected later into a companion e-book.

To create the e-book, I used the DIFFUSION e-book generator, which was developed by artist-led studio and think tank Proboscis. To enjoy your copy of this e-book, simply choose a download link below (depending on what part of the world you are in, you will require either the Letter or A4 formatted version). Once you have downloaded the PDF file, print the e-book, and assemble according to the directions on the last page of the e-book. Then read it, share it, and print another for yourself or a friend!
