Wigs and Makeup Technician Practicum

Share

Country:

City:

Overview

This is presently the only program in Canada with a hands-on, self-led learning atmosphere where mentor support is provided. Starting with the basics, practicum participants will learn about wig and hair types and the various construction techniques for making wig foundations and facial hair, including the skills of ventilating/knotting. Styling tools and methods for various periods and purposes will be a focus of activity. 

Makeup will play a significant part in participant-led projects, which will also include special effects. Show-based learning will occur as participants meet the practical and design requirements of supporting a production. 

Crossover mediums involving costume, millinery, and props will be explored. Participants will learn how departments like costume, lighting, and sound integrate with the wigs and makeup department to collaborate and build a production.  

What does the program offer?

Practicums will benefit from a one-on-one training introduction to what the current wig and makeup industry requires as a profession. Experience will be gained through working on show-related projects and performances that may include opera, drama, and dance. 

Workshops will be offered within the program, focusing on special effects makeup, lighting, sound, costume, millinery, and how these disciplines interrelate. These workshops will enhance the skills and understanding of the wigs and makeup technician, and will cover what is required to meet the practical and design requirements of a show. Participants will also have the opportunity to culminate their accumulated skills to collaborate on a photo shoot project.

Who should apply?

Ideal applicants will enjoy working with their hands, and have patience and an eye for detail. Visual arts experience is an asset.

Applicants should have a desire to work with people in a collaborative manner, an appreciation for creativity, resourcefulness, and ingenuity. A positive and curious attitude and a tendency toward organization are also helpful.

Overview

The Banff International Literary Translation Centre (BILTC) offers student, emerging, and professional literary translators a period of uninterrupted work on a current project. Participants will work in a trilingual environment with consulting translators and peers, resulting in a mutually beneficial learning experience.

Participants will work individually and as a group with a faculty of accomplished translators of French, English, and Spanish. Participants will also have an opportunity to consult with the author whose work they are translating.

The BILTC program offers individual work sessions with consulting translators and the program director. Accepted translators can expect to present their work-in-progress at round table sessions held three times a week and moderated by the program director and guest faculty. The round table sessions will include a broader group discussion of issues and challenges faced in the practice of literary translation.

A guest publisher will share experiences on translation in an informal talk, and translators will have the opportunity to read from their works-in-progress at an open reading event. Readings and presentations of experiences related to writing and translating may be shared at additional informal sessions. 

Who should apply?

BILTC welcomes applications from translators at various career stages including student, emerging, and professional translators. Participants seeking time to focus on a current literary project and an opportunity to connect with literary translators from around the world will benefit greatly from this program.

Solitary Retreat in the Nevada Desert

Share

Category:

Country:

Montello Foundation is a foundation dedicated to support artists who foster our understanding of nature, its fragility and our need to protect it.

The Montello Foundation provides a solitary retreat where artists can experience the vastness of a desert landscape from a safe building, a “base camp,” a unique space for inspiration and creation, a place that provides a shield from distractions in the solitude of the desert.

A building designed with a large shading roof under which there are two distinct spaces: one space for the bodily needs: eating; sleeping; washing, and a stove for the cold desert nights, and a second space for work: for writing; painting; drawing; studying, a space for the first materializations of new ideas.

There is no cost for this program. Artists must cover travel and living expenses.
