Digital Creator North Bay operates as a free, drop-in learning environment for youth aged 11 – 19 to acquire digital media skills. Staffed by artist mentors, the space is equipped to support interest-driven creative activities like 3D Printing, coding, graphic design, animation, videography, digital photography, podcasting and audio recording. Teens can also come in to work on homework, read, paint, draw, collage, or just hang out and play video games with friends!

What is Dgtl Creator North?

Digital Creator North is a free, low-barrier program for youth and emerging artists with a focus on using digital and media arts tools to support creativity in a casual atmosphere. It is a welcoming program that offers participants the freedom to gain digital skills at their own pace, collaborate with others, and learn from experienced mentors. In 2020 we launched a virtual version of the Digital Creator, using the platform. We are also currently working on creating a network to support communities in northern Ontario that want to create their own spaces using Digital Creator as a model.
