Comox Valley streaming Youth Media Project on Sept. 19th

From the small community of Courtenay, the Comox Valley Art Gallery is showcasing their Youth Media Project… on the small screen.

The Youth Media Project takes 9 individuals, aged 16-30, into a 13-week program and builds their foundation of media and employability skills.

Succeeding the program, the participants create an independent film, and a film which collaborates with a small business or community organization that performs sustainable work.

Mentorship, artist collaboration, and digital media – all in the name of community action.

Previous year’s film submissions cover a range of social problems from Child Neglect, Addiction, to Animal Cruelty.

Although the film screenings are usually held in hand (in-person) with The Sid Williams Theatre Society – their collaboration will be premiering the Youth Media Project through live steam.
