 Organization Description The Near North Mobile Media Lab actively promotes media arts access for all artists, regardless of age, class, gender, sexual orientation, race, or ability. We provide the tools that artists, students, and audiences in Northern Ontario need to produce, present, and enjoy all forms of contemporary media art. We envision a thriving media arts community in Northern Ontario that produces innovative work, has access to contemporary presentations, and is an active participant in a national discourse by overcoming regional limitations. Project Description The Digital Creator project has established low-barrier media arts based creator spaces for youth (ages 14-19) in six partner communities across Northern Ontario. These spaces operate as drop-in, out-of-school learning environments for youth to develop skills in digital media using a participatory culture model. These spaces inspire creative experimentation, peer networking/collaboration, civic engagement, and hands-on learning using various media arts disciplines. These disciplines include video production, audio recording, 3D printing, graphic design, and coding/programming. This project is aimed to have a positive cultural impact within the community of Sioux Lookout and surrounding area by increasing participation of youth in digital media creation.
