Ed Video has a number of opportunities for young artists to get involved at any stage in their education and career. We provide specific youth programming, but also encourage participation in our regular workshops, events, and programmes.
We regularly partner with other organizations to develop opportunities for youth to learn new media arts production skills or create new projects. From educational outreach and camps to high school co-ops, internships, and experiential learning—youth involvement has been a vital element of our success as an organization.
As an artist-run, media arts centre Ed Video is able to offer students exciting opportunities to work with video technology, assist in the operation of a gallery, and chances to network with professional film and media makers.
Placement at Ed Video is ideal for students who plan to work in the arts or attend a post-secondary institute with a focus in media/film.
Ed Video’s co-op students work independently and perform a variety of tasks including:
– Planning, shooting, and editing videos
– Creating posters or website pages for events
– Aiding in the installation of a gallery exhibit
– Maintaining the appearance of the centre and the gallery
As Ed Video is only open from 10am to 5pm, we are only able to accept co-op placements during these times. For more information about student placements at Ed Video please call our office at (519) 836-9811 or visit the centre.
Ed Video welcomes post-secondary students and recent graduates to expand their education with practical, hands on experience at one of Canada’s oldest artist run centres.
We regularly host experiential learning students or co-op students from local colleges and universities such as Conestoga Collge or the University of Guelph. Interested students are encouraged to contact us for more information.
Past internships have been funded by IMAA through the DS4Y program provided by Industry, Science, and Economic Development Canada.
Ed Video hosts camps during the summer and march breaks to engage young filmmakers, animators, and artists.
Our camps focus on providing hands on learning opportunities with professional equipment and software to youth, led by experienced and emerging artists who are experts in their field. Campers have the opportunity to create short films, animations, or other media artworks over the course of a week, culminating in a presentation of the completed works to families, friends, and guardians.
