The Garden City Electronic Music Society produces two major festivals, Wonderment and Neuztec (both heading into their 7th editions in 2022). GCEMS also produces and partners in a variety of other music events, workshops and masterclasses relating to electronic music and media art. While calls for artists are periodically made for our festival season, we welcome expressions of interest and other proposals at any time of year.
GCEMS is supported by the Government of Canada, the Province of British Columbia, the BC Arts Council, Capital Regional District, and the City of Victoria, with assistance from Long & McQuade, MODO Car Co-Op, Sunbelt Rentals and Metropol Industries. Donations have also helped support GCEMS efforts to produce accessible and free arts programming for our region.
