Youth Media Project applications are being accepted by the Comox Valley Art Gallery.

CVAG invites youth to apply for media project

Youth Media Project provides training and hands-on experience in video production, graphic design, and web development

Are you a young person who wants to make videos, learn job skills and get paid at the same time?

The Comox Valley Art Gallery is accepting applications for its Youth Media Project, a 12-week program that provides training and hands-on experience in video production, graphic design, and web development.

To qualify for the project, applicants must be between 16 and 30 years old, interested in art and video, and experiencing barriers to employment. They cannot be attending school full time or collecting employment insurance.

Participants will work out of the Comox Valley Art Gallery’s media lab five days a week. The program will run for 12 weeks, starting March 10.

There will be an information session at the gallery on Feb. 27, starting at 5:30 p.m. Snacks will be provided.

“This is where the arts meets practical training and hands-on work experience,” said Mary Alice, team leader for the project. “We ran a similar project last year and it was a tremendous success.”

To apply for the project, send a resumé and covering letter to director@comoxvalleyartgallery.com or bring your application to the Comox Valley Art Gallery at 580 Duncan St. The deadline for applications is Feb. 28 at 5 p.m.

For more details, visit www.comoxvalleyartgallery.com or call 250-338-6211.
