What is Creative Tucson?

Some creative folks in town started up this venture in April, 2016. This is who they say they are:

WHAT WE DO

 “Creative Tucson is a community for video storytellers to create and share their content, both online and on cable television. We believe in finding and promoting new voices and giving them the tools to make compelling content.
We were built by a coalition of media experts – BRINK, WaveLab Studios and KXCI – with support from the City of Tucson. But the real power of Creative Tucson is in our members and their ingenuity. We offer them the opportunity and support to pursue stories and projects that otherwise may not be realized.
There are a variety of ways to get involved and gain skills, with community media classes, our online community forum, studio time, equipment rentals, internships, meet-ups and more.”
