JUST for TEENS to use!
Digital Creator North is a teen media arts lab and hangout space. Teens are encouraged to use the space in a way that fits with their individual interests! We aim to promote digital literacy by providing space, equipment, software and mentorship with a variety of digital media arts technology. Our goal is to create teens who are creators of digital media content and not just consumers!
There are lots of exciting workshops coming up, some of which include:
♦ Super Smash Bros tournament for gamecube (teen-organized, prizes to be awarded)
♦ Shaw TV Filmmaking Workshops (learning from industry pros Christian and Zoe of Shaw TV, teens make video work that will be aired online and on local tv)
♦ Intro to Doing with DJ Seith
♦ Zine-making night
♦ 3D modelling with TInkercad
Bring a friend and record a movie or mess-around on photoshop. If you’re not sure how to use something there’s always help around!

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.
