grunt gallery has been given the reigns to program content on a new non-commercial urban media screen over a five-year period in Mount Pleasant.

The urban screen is being constructed on the second floor of the RIZE building on the western side of Kingsway Avenue facing the street. The Mount Pleasant Urban Screen will provide a wide range of artwork representing different parts of the Mount Pleasant community. One of our first initiatives for the screen is a series of digital stories workshops. We are inviting you to become part of grunt gallery's new Urban Screen project by participating in a one-day Digital Stories workshop!

grunt gallery and EastVanDigital Stories (Lorna Boschman) join forces to work with Mount Pleasant residents who want to create short videos. Participants in the workshop have the choice to show their digital stories on the screen, and digital stories website, or to join the workshop to make a digital story without having it shown in public.

To sign up for a workshop, send an email to Lorna Boschman at lorna@digitalstories.ca. Up to four people can register per weekly workshop. In the email, please include your name, email address, phone/text number, and whether you live in Mount Pleasant.

Artists: Lorna Boschman & Sebnem Ozpeta
Where: grunt gallery
Workshop Dates: (12 - 4PM each day): May 6, 13, 20 +  June 10
