The Centre for Sound Communities is very pleased to be the recipient of funding from Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada and Nova Scotia Communities, Culture and Heritage in support of its Digital Internship Pilot Program. This project provides training, employment and professional development to 10 Cape Breton youth.
Based at the Centre for Sound Communities, Digital Interns support the collaborations of the Centre’s researchers, working with local groups in Sydney, Nova Scotia, and with partners from across Canada and around the globe. Using the state-of-the-art equipment at the Centre for Sound Communities Studio, Media Lab, Meeting Room and workstations, Interns develop digital collections for libraries and archives; and interactive, media-rich educational materials. They also support the development and delivery of technology-enriched public programming, engaging broad publics by sharing new research knowledge through media-rich publications, online resources, and vibrant social media campaigns.
Each of the Interns, and the Coordinators who work to support them, are documenting their experiences as they move forward through the project: blogging, providing photos and posting media they create as they progress through their internships.
