Our Programs

To date we have developed over 40 customized media intensive programs which have built creative confidence, result in the production of hundreds of videos, animations + digital works, and engaged over 1200 youth from a range of marginalized communities.


#HerDigitalVisions is a digital education and media production initiative. In each phase, the program integrates technology and art to support active, youth-centered approaches to building a better digital world.

Climate Matters

Climate Matters is a multi-phased initiative that uses digital media and geomapping to spark dialogue about climate justice within schools, communities and larger public institutions.

Digital Forage

Digital Forage is a wild-food focused intergenerational digital storytelling program that involves
reciprocal knowledge-sharing between Galiano and Penelakut artists, elders, and youth.


HumanEYES is an intergenerational arts initiative that helps students creatively reflect on the diverse
life experiences of their classmates, and build more creatively engaged, connected, and inclusive school


A chapter of AMES’ #HerDigitalVisions program, #GirlsMakeGames is a FREE 4-day game-making boot-camp being offered to 8 self-identified women (cis, trans + genderqueer) between the ages of 19 and 29.


DisPLACEment is a media arts production and outreach program that brings Indigenous, migrant + refugee youth together to make + share short videos that bust myths, creatively explore changing ideas of ‘home’ and ‘belonging’, and shine light on the forces behind and consequences of displacement and re-settlement.
