Electronic Perception Garage
Youth Mentorship Project 2018 // Ages 16-24
Electronic Perception Garage was a mentorship project providing youth (16-24 yrs) the technical, conceptual, and community support to create video art installation works. Participants learned to use video cameras, microphones, and editing software to explore an idea or issue that mattered to them.
The mentorship was guided by media artist Alysha Seriani, and combined visual studies with hands-on studio experience, including a field trip to media galleries, the Crista Dahl Media Library & Archive, and artist studio visit. The project culminated 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. The project coordinator was Pietro Sammarco.
The mentorship was 6 sessions long running November to December 2018.
