    Digital Creator North (DCN) spaces are intended to inspire creative experimentation, digital literacy, peer networking, connected learning, and community engagement through the use of media arts disciplines. The project is aimed at bringing a positive cultural impact to Northern communities by increasing participation in the media arts sector. Workshops and use of the space is free, and housed downtown in the public library for low-barrier access.

    DCN SSM offers teens equipment, software and mentorship in various disciplines including but not limited to digital photography, video production, illustration/animation, audio recording, graphic design and coding. Through both structured programming (scheduled activities or workshops) and unstructured drop-in hours (open studio) the DCN space is geared towards providing a safe, open space to facilitate interest-driven learning and creation.
