About Media Arts Center San Diego: Media Arts Center San Diego promotes access to film and video as tools for community self-expression and social change and supports the professional development of media artists through programs such as the Teen Producers Project and San Diego Digital Stories. The Teen Producers Project teaches underserved youth to research, produce, and edit short documentaries focusing on community issues. The Digital Stories gives community members an opportunity to spotlight something they deeply care about for others to see and hear. The stories will be part of a growing collection of stories that can help us all better understand one another and connect our stories to the places we live in.
