The call is officially out for the 31st annual CFAT Media Art Scholarship! Applications will be due on Thursday, June 7th at Midnight.

The CFAT Media Arts Scholarship program is a rigorous six-month education and mentorship opportunity where participants make a media art project. Selected applicants are required to make a media art piece in a medium in which they have little to no previous experience. The Media Art Scholarship Program is open to any member of the public who is not currently attending a similar program. You do not need to be an artist to apply, but you do need to have a clear vision/concept for your art project. Read more about the scholarship here.

Before you send in that application, join us for our scholarship info session!
Do you have an idea but you’re unsure how to put it down on paper? Not sure if you’re right for the program? Join Programming Director Tori Fleming as she reviews what the jury looks for in an application, what kinds of projects are possible and answers your questions. The info session will take place here at CFAT at 2238 Maitland st. on Wednesday, May 23rd at 6:30pm.
