The Comox Valley Art Gallery’s Youth Media Project uses digital media, creative facilitation and artistic collaboration as a framework for youth to share their stories. Youth between the ages of 16-30 get paid full-time minimum wage to learn media and employability skills over a 13-week program.
Participants create one independent film, and one film in collaboration with a small business or community organization that is doing sustainable work in the Valley. The folks who come through the program end up creating long lasting connections not just with each other, but with other community members and organizations in the Comox Valley.
Deadline for application for the September program is: Wed, Aug 21, 2019
