The Windsor Centre for Film, Digital Media & the Creative Arts has partnered with Westervelt College (link to Westervelt here) to offer a 12-month diploma program in Storytelling for the Digital Age, where students will learn the art and craft of communication by learning how to tell stories, operate professional equipment, and learn the latest audiovisual software and technology. Students will develop their own entrepreneurial and artistic voice by working closely with highly skilled instructors in a hands-on learning environment.
Financial Aid is available to those interested in applying for the Storytelling for the Digital Age program at Westervelt College.
Bursaries in the amount of $10,000 are available to financially disadvantaged persons from traditionally underrepresented groups in the industry (Black, Indigenous, people of colour, women, youth, LGBTQ2+, and individuals with disabilities). If you reside in Windsor-Essex, Chatham-Kent, or Sarnia-Lambton, you may qualify. To learn more, visit Westervelt.ca.
