Electronic Perception Garage is a mentorship project providing youth (16-24 yrs) the technical, conceptual, and community support to create video art installation works. Participants learn to use video cameras, microphones, and editing software to explore an idea or issue that matters to them.
The mentorship is guided by media artist Alysha Seriani, and combines visual studies with hands-on studio experience, including a field trip to media galleries, an archive, and artist studio visit. The project culminates in a free public event at VIVO Media Arts Centre. Primary funding is generously provided by the ArtStarts Creative Spark Grant, with equipment, facilities, and technical support provided by VIVO.
This mentorship is 6 sessions (4 hours each), running the following dates. Selected participants have to attend all 6 sessions:
