AMI’s Digital Citizenship Lab

Appalshop’s Appalachian Media Institute will host a month-long production lab with youth interns, aged 14-22, from southeastern Kentucky counties. Located in Whitesburg, KY, the organization will provide equipment, training, and mentorship to rural interns who want to explore the realities of limited broadband access in the coalfields. In particular, youth interns will create multi-media pieces that look more closely at the educational and economic impacts we face by our lack of high-speed Internet availability.
