Drop Out Video Arts

So here is something super that should happen more  

"Drop Out Video Arts (DOVA) is a newly-founded non-profit organization motivated toward the promotion of experimental video-art in Vancouver, Canada. Previously a tight-nit group of independent artists residing in the Downtown Eastside, DOVA decided to form a non-profit in late 2010 with a goal of bringing this highly collaborative art-form into larger, more publicly accessible venues."
