Join our team as a Youth Researcher!

Do you love digital art/music, and want to gain more leadership experience?

Join our team as a Youth Researcher!

Overview:

Our team at DGTL Creator North has recently launched an online hangout space focused on digital/media art and music! We connect with youth using Gather.town and Discord for collaborative creativity and playing around with all things digital. 

We invite you to build and run a workshop in your field of interest! 

As a Youth Researcher, you get to work closely with our programming facilitators/artists: Tyler Cunningham, Rebecca Watson, and Heran Genene. This is an excellent opportunity to get hands-on experience with pros in the arts sector, and to build on leadership skills. We will respond  to your creative interests through one-on-one artistic chats and workshops, as well as by building community for collaboration and support.

With this creative virtual leadership position you will:

  • Brainstorm some workshop ideas with our team
  • Plan and help to run your own  workshop!
  • Create invitations and recruit participants (they can be your friends!)
  • Debrief with participants about how the event went
  • Tell us what you thought of the experience!

Compensation: You will be paid $300 for a total of 12 hours of work.

Does this sound like you?:

  • You are between the ages of 15-19 and living in Northern Ontario
  • You have an interest in digital/media art (some examples include: music-making, digital drawing, animation, photography, coding art, etc)
  • You can get reliable access to an internet connection while we are creating the workshop together (at school, a library/community center, or at home)

To apply

Send us an email to [email protected] and attach either a written or short video application telling us why you want to join us, and what leadership and creative skills make you a good fit! Send us any questions you may have to either that email address or on social media! Instagram: @digitalcreatornorth, Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/digitalcreatornorth
