Call for Participants: Video Project (see attachment)

Althea Thauberger will be coming to Brock University as the 2013 Walker Cultural Leader in Visual Arts. Althea brings a wealth of experience, and she has created a lot of exciting work that has earned her national and international attention. She will be at Brock from Oct 28 to Nov 8 and Visual Arts students have a unique opportunity to work directly with Althea!

While she is here, Althea will be making a short documentary style video in collaboration with VISA students. The focus of the video will be the relocation of the Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine & Performing Arts to downtown St. Catharines in 2015.

There are many opportunities for students to get involved! Whether you like to brainstorm, storyboard, use the video or audio equipment, there’s a place for you on our crew! Please sign up and let us know what you would like to take part of.This is a great opportunity to be part of a cool project and start to build your resume!
