SPNN is a community media and technology center that provides the tools and training for youth, adult, and nonprofits to use media and technology to tell stories and gain job skills. We have 35 AmeriCorps members in nonprofits, libraries, and workforce centers around the Twin Cities metro area. We partner with organizations to create studio programs. Through our programs and classes we help youth and adults learn media making skills.
Due to COVID-19 our media center is open three days a week. We are open Sundays from 1-5, Tuesdays 3-7, and Fridays from 3-7. We are limiting the amount of people in the space so reservations need to be made 24 hours in advance. All of our classes are virtual. See below to sign up for our Intro to SPNN class. After you have taken the Intro class you can sign up to take the Camera Class to learn how to utilize our cameras, audio, and other field gear.
