Euphoria & Dystopia
This publication is a compendium of some of the most visionary thinking about art and technology to have taken place in the last few decades.
Based on the research of the Banff New Media Institute from 1995 to 2005, the book celebrates the belief that the creative and cultural sector, in collaboration with scientists and humanists, have a critical role to play in developing participatory technologies that work toward human betterment. Included with the book, is a DVD based on the electronic journal produced at Banff—HorizonZero, documenting BNMI events and co-productions.

Languages of Our Land/Langues de notre terre
Languages of Our Land/Langues de notre terre is a collection of poems and stories by twelve emerging and established Indigenous writers living in Quebec and writing in French.
Translated by Christelle Morelli
These writers all participated in either the Aboriginal Emerging Writers Program (now the Indigenous Writing Program) at The Banff Centre, funded by the Canada Council for the Arts, or the francophone chapter of this program, Programme à l'intention d'écrivains autochtones en début de carrière, in Quebec. The writing within Languages is presented in English translation alongside the French original and interlaced with words in the writers’ ancestral Indigenous languages—Innu-aimun, Wendat, Cree, and Algonquin—glossed at the end of the anthology.
