VPM + ICA Community Media Center

There are too many barriers to putting important stories into the world. The VPM and ICA are challenging those barriers by launching the VPM + ICA Community Media Center – a recording studio and workspace that is free, and open to the public.

Whether you’re a student interested in media, a professional radio host, or simply a community member with something to say, the Community Media Center is for you. Learn practical and profitable production skills from experts. Build community with other storytellers, and get your voice out in the world.
