Well, it seems that the Kitchener Public Library is once again being featured in my #365ofgoodWR project. They have recently opened up their Heffner Studio, an audio and digital media production lab at the Central branch. "Featuring four audio recording studios equipped with the latest gear, a selection of instruments, professional grade peripherals including 3D printers, 3D Scanners, Virtual Reality, and graphic design tools, Heffner Studio will be the community hub for audio and digital creation." Learn more about this space as well as the Chapter One project, "KPL's podcast series created to capture the stories of our community and amplify them throughout the Waterloo Region and beyond. Recorded in the library’s Heffner Studio, the series will inspire, inform and entertain by featuring the unique and diverse voices of our community."
It's been great to see these kinds of options become available in our region. The Working Centre has also developed the Commons Studio. This space, which is "one of The Working Centre's Community Tools projects, encourages community filmmaking through the sharing of skills, knowledge, equipment & resources." These kinds of services open up opportunities for many to create unique digital media productions. If you haven't yet, consider visiting both the Heffner Studio and the Common Studio to learn more.
