MakerLab Youth Immersion

This is YOUR chance to shine!

Every week, you’ll try something new: 3D printing, laser engraving, drum making, and MUCH more. Over the course of the school year, you will choose a project to work on, that will be featured in our “MakerLab Youth Immersion” exhibition in the gallery in September.

Indigenous Youth are encouraged to apply. Partial & full scholarships are available.

At least 6 spots in the program are reserved for youth who self-identify as First Nations. This program is heavily subsidised, and is available at no cost to those in financial need.

 

ARE YOU:

Between the ages of 15 & 20? Interested in art, design, new technologies, DIY culture and working with your hands?

 

MakerLab Youth Immersion is where 15- to 20-year-olds get to work with some of the best artists in Prince George.

MakerLab Youth Immersion is looking for young adults keen to meet every Thursday, 5 – 7pm, for a 10 month self-guided exploration under the direction of practising professionals: artists, craftspeople, makers, mentors and elders.

MakerLab Youth Immersion includes a year-long Maker 2RG membership, access to tools, equipment and materials. Youth will work towards an exhibition in September 2020 featuring work they have created in the program.
