THE MIDPEN MEDIA CENTER in Palo Alto

 

The mission of the Midpen Media Center in Palo Alto, California is to inform, inspire, and empower people to speak and act on behalf of their communities; and to use television and the Internet to create and distribute programs that promote and celebrate individual expression, local achievements, education, cultural exchange, arts appreciation, and civic engagement.  The center does this by providing hands-on workshops in video production and by empowering its community with storytelling tools that encourage public engagement.

  

Midpen Media Center’s ultimate vision is of a community that explores and uses video and other electronic-communications technologies to tell its stories, learn about the diversity of its community, and engage in a dialogue that crosses political and cultural boundaries.
