Storytellers = Better Problem Solvers
We invite the community to get involved with industry guest speakers and film screenings. We’ve partnered with 2019 Academy Award winner Kevin Willmott, author and Northwestern School of Communications associate professor Miriam Petty, director Kat Candler, and costume concept artist Phillip Boutte Jr. These events give students and the community-at-large the opportunity to meet and hear first-hand stories of leaders in creative industries.
Student-led community projects are a chance to share the joy of storytelling with our community. We’ve partnered with industry professionals and education programs like WMCAT, Kentwood High School, Careerline Tech Center, Grand Rapids Art Museum, HQ, the Mayor’s Greening Initiative, and Project One by ArtPrize. These multifaceted projects provide nonprofit organizations with content and students with real digital media experience.
