Digital Media Studio Practicum | Visual Arts






Studio Practicum programs provide an opportunity for participants to expand and enhance their technical skills in mediums supported by Banff Centre’s Visual Arts production facilities. 

This program offers practical experience in the areas of audio, animation, interactive media, computational media, digital fabrication, video production, and post-production for use in artistic practice.

Digital Media Studio Practicum participants will receive mentorship and feedback from the Digital Media Facilitator, and assist in the delivery of Visual Arts residency programs and events. Participants learn maintenance and safe operation of equipment, and provide assistance to the Digital Media Facilitator, in support of artists in residence utilizing the digital media production facilities.

What does the program offer?

Learning opportunities will arise through workshops, demonstrations, and instruction in studio training. Individual learning objectives and goals are determined in consultation with a mentor at the beginning of the program. Digital media is the principal focus of this program, however supplementary learning opportunities may be offered in other Visual Arts disciplines throughout the program.

Practicum participants will experience hands-on learning in support of artist projects in Visual Arts residency programs. Participants will receive mentorship to strengthen their technical and artistic knowledge, communication, critical thinking, teamwork, leadership, and problem-solving skills.

The regular course of study for the Digital Media Studio Practicum is 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday to Friday. Participants have the opportunity to spend one weekday focused on independent study, while the other four weekdays are dedicated to supporting the Digital Media Facilitator, artists in residence, and regular departmental projects.

Who should apply?

This program is suited for recent graduates of studio-based programs with an emphasis on Digital Media. The program offers experience within a professional organization for those seeking careers as studio technicians or production assistants, or those in pursuit of graduate studies. Applicants must exhibit foundational skills in various digital media through their portfolio submissions. 

Artists from diverse backgrounds are encouraged to apply, with a special invitation to individuals of Indigenous descent.
