videos won them bursaries from the conference organizers.
Arts management students Blanche
Israёl and Lesley Bramhill submitted YouTube videos as part of a
contest run by the Canadian Artists' Representation/Le Front des
artistes canadiens (CARFAC), which offered the winners the chance to attend the June
conference in Ottawa called Art + Law.
students found out about the conference after Sherri Helwig, program
director for arts management, posted about it on her Facebook
“Entrants had to create videos, upload them to YouTube and
garner the greatest number of votes to win,” Helwig says.
“With a bit of sharing, help from faculty and other UTSC
students they were both successful.”
only did the two students win bursaries, but other students also
became interested in attending the conference after they became aware
of it through the contest, Helwig says.
