AMI's Digital Citizenship Lab

AMI's Digital Citizenship Lab

In the month of August, Appalshop's Appalachian Media Institute hosted a four-week production lab with youth interns, aged 14-22, from southeastern Kentucky counties. Located in Whitesburg, KY, the organization provided equipment, training, and mentorship to rural interns who wanted to explore the realities of limited broadband access in the coalfields. During this production lab, youth interns created a variety of multi-media pieces that look closely at the educational and economic impacts their communities face by a lack of high-speed Internet availability.
