Share your passion
Lead a workshop
The Surplace media coop is calling for proposals for its Fall 2018/ Winter 2019 workshop series. An ideal workshop teaches practical skills, and mentors students on their projects. The class size is limited to 8 students. The suggested cost for students is 150-250$, but this is negotiable. Teachers earn 80% of tuition. This works out to $960 for 8 students paying 150$.
Please read through the details on this page, and use the form below to submit your proposal. Proposals will be considered as they are received; there isn’t a specific deadline. The first session of workshops will begin in early October 2018; the second session will begin in January 2019.
If you have any questions, send an email to email@example.com.

Surplace is a media coop and workers collective focused on creative digital content for online dissemination: videos, podcasts, internet radio, events, and more. We have an experimental business model for creating media that enriches our local community while creating meaningful employment and opportunities for our members. Surplace offers affordable workshops to help Montrealers tell the stories that matter to them in a fun and relaxed environment. We do media contracts with local businesses who want to make an impact with beautiful, fun and engaging media.
