Call for Indigenous Artists: Electric Circuits Video Jockey Mentorship

Indigenous Artists: Are you interested in becoming a VJ? Video Jockeys travel the world, projecting their digital art at festivals and events. A single performance of 2 hours can pay anywhere from $500 to $5000, and the atmosphere you work in is celebratory and supportive.

The Kingston-based Electric Circuits Collective has been awarded an Ontario Arts Council grant to assist an Ontario-based Indigenous artist to become a VJ. If you have worked with video or electronic music, even just minimally, please email us your interest before the deadline of June 15, 2022.

The participating artist will be (remotely) mentored this summer by a professional VJ (Hri Neil, aka DJ Construct), they will receive software and hardware needed to work on a VJ set, and will show their work in October at the annual EC festival, which will pay $2,000.
