Jaclyn Bruneau is a writer, editor and organizer based in Toronto. She's Editor of C magazine and on the Board of Directors at Images Festival.

Together with Jacquelyn Ross (Blank Cheque Press), she started DAMN REENA, a handful of persons assembled to interrogate collectivity and collaboration, and produce writing-based works as a group. She is underway on an inconspicuous, year-long, Kijiji publishing project with Natasha Chaykowski and Untitled Art Society called please teach me how to swim. She’s been known to host ad hoc writing workshops.

This year, she participated in the 31st Images Festival Research Forum (Toronto) and in the Oberhausen Seminar in conjunction with LUX (London) and the Robert Flaherty Film Seminar (New York). In 2017, she participated in Fan Wu’s Close Workshops series—on the writing of grief and mourning—supported by Art Metropole, which will culminate in an anthology published later this year. Thanks to the BC Arts Council, she spent 2017 at work on a survey of contemporary cultural criticism. In 2016, she was a resident at The Banff Centre's Critical Art Writing Ensemble II and in 2015, was awarded the Editorial Residency at Canadian Art. She has held positions at The Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery, Contemporary Art Gallery, Vancouver International Film Festival, Vancouver Latin American Film Festival and New Forms Festival and has given talks on exhibitions and projects by more than a dozen artists, Canadian and otherwise.
