Peter Davies of AHA MEDIA is very proud to be part of W2 Bladerunners Youth Media Arts Apprenticeship Program

Below is a photo of Peter Davies and Vancouver Canucks Legend Trevor Linden

Peter will be learning more about  mobile technology, locative media, web 2.0, social media, web sites, VJing, telepresence, live screens, radio, community TV, digital divide, and open source!

W2 Community Media Arts has been working for more than one year with ACCESS/Bladerunners developing a media arts apprenticeship program.

http://www.CreativeTechnology.org

The W2 Bladerunners Youth Media Arts Apprenticeship Program is well underway but below were some of the program details:


If you are between 19 and 30 years old, are eager to train and work hard, then this could be for you! Honorariums are paid to participants for 24 hours/week, daily lunch is provided. Aboriginal youth, women, and youth of colour from the inner-city are encouraged to apply. This is designed as an apprenticeship program for people who face systemic barriers to a creative technology career or practice.

When you get involved with our 5-month youth apprenticeship program you will play a central role in W2 as we get set to open 9000 sq ft at Woodward’s in January 2010, and emerge as a world-class crossmedia centre. It will be an exciting few months, and for young people wanting an awesome experience working collaboratively to create media art, events, installations, and live interactive experiences = this is it!!

Following this challenging five month apprenticeship program, participants will receive regular employment with W2 or our partner employers from the local digital media/ Information and Communications Technology (ICT) sector.

We open at Woodwards in January 2010, but in the meantime we are actively developing and launching programs from our temporary space at 112 West Hastings.

Our innovative programs confront the digital divide with marginalized inner-city residents and artists accessing and using technology. Visiting artists-in-residence and mentors provide inspiration and support, and live events and projects give our crew the chance to test and showcase their skills and achievements.

Antoni Abad will be one of our mobile media mentors with Mobile*Native, during November 2009. Jon Cohrs/OMGIMON.TV will set up an analogue TV station. Other artists will work with us to build web sites, and we will produce major events, receptions, screenings, and parties.

The development of training, apprenticeship/employment placement programs for the digital media sector is being supported by governments, industry, and the community. Bladerunners is an internationally recognized, award winning employment program assisting multi-barrier and disadvantaged youth in gaining on the job construction training and apprenticeships. W2 is delivering Bladerunner’s first non-construction trade apprenticeship program, with funding by Bell and the Ministry of Advanced Education and Labour Market Development. W2 is also collaborating with Building Opportunities with Business Inner-City Society (BOB) new ICT Cluster, and this will be a connection point for participant’s employment in the local sector.

J-Hock of AHA MEDIA talks about Bill 18 – Assistance to Shelter Act in Vancouver Downtown Eastside

Read about Bill 18 – Assistance to Shelter Act – where the Homeless get picked up by Police to go into shelters!

http://www.leg.bc.ca/39th1st/1st_read/gov18-1.htm

According to

VANCOUVER (NEWS1130) – Opponents of the province’s new ‘Assistance to Shelter Act’ are holding a rally today in the Downtown Eastside, intensifying the fight over what to do about Vancouver’s homeless during the Olympic Games.

Opponents call it the “Olympic Kidnapping Act’, saying the act is unconstitutional.  The province maintains it is simply trying to help people who cant, or wont, help themselves.  Some claim the homeless are being chased out of the city altogether before February 2010.  A drop-in centre in Kelowna is reporting a 20 per cent increase in traffic, with many of the new clients saying they are from Vancouver.

Can Residents & Associations hold the City to its promise to not displace current residents?

Can we advocate for development that will benefit 70% of the DTES who are low – income?
