How did you hear about the scholarship program?

Why do you think you would benefit from a mentorship program?
While the Scholarship program is a great resource for equipment, facilities and promotion – we consider the most important part of the program to be the mentorship we provide from experts in media art. Why do you think you would benefit from one on one mentorship? Why is this a good point in your life for mentorship? (250 words max.)

Title of Proposed Project

Conceptual Outline
Please describe the concept/theme/idea of the work. (250 words max.)

How will the project look/sound/function?
What form/medium will the final project take? (250 words max)

How do you envision the project being presented?
What will the audience see? How will they interact with the piece? Will the work be screened in a theatre setting? Installed in a particular space? Audio on headphones? Etc. (250 words max)

What past experience, if any, do you have with media art?
Please note that this is just for our reference in building workshops, inexperience will not prevent you from being admitted to the program. (250 words or less)

What programs/skills do you think you will need?
(Ex. Sound recording, colour correction, circuit bending, etc.) It’s ok if you’re not sure entirely what would be needed – we just want an idea of what tools you’re thinking about.

Are you able to attend regular Thursday evening workshops from August – December 2018?

Attach a CV or resume of any relevant experience you may have.

Up to 6 images.
