Meet Wilgens Metelus

CCTV Youth Media Trainer is an artist in all senses of the word...

Wilgens Metelus is a familiar face at CCTV.  When he's most visible, you'll see him carrying a camera, doing man-on-the-street style interviews, asking locals to wish their loved ones a happy holiday or asking kids to describe their Halloween outfit.  It's when Wilgen is less visible that he's doing his most important work as a youth trainer for CCTV's Youth Media Program.  In between he's a multi-media artist open to experiment with a wide variety of genres.
