Aaron Nelson Bio

Currently Aaron is the Associate Director at Medalta, a museum, residency, research and education centre in Medicine Hat Alberta. This position has allowed him to develop relationships with a regional, national and international community of makers, academics and arts administrators and thus contextualize the diversity of contemporary approaches to delivering cultural content.
 
In addition to his work as an arts administrator, consultant and technical educator, Aaron also maintains an active studio practice. Currently his studio research focuses on the intersection of digital technology and traditional ceramic practice. He has lectured on this topic throughout Canada and his research has been supported by the Canada Council for the Arts, The Alberta Foundation of the Arts, and the National Research Council
