D-NEXT Accessible Media Team

Want to expand on your Storytelling and Media Production skills through a training project  designed by and for people with disabilities?

CILT’s D-NEXT Accessible Media Team is a small accessible media lab offered by CILT, together with community partners and a creative advisory team of disabled storytellers, including podcasters, videographers and bloggers.

This January, D-NEXT jumpstarts a free new media training project for disabled storytellers seeking to expand their media toolkit and work on small productions. Participants will undertake a 10-week training series, meeting once-weekly.

We are taking applications for our first round of trainings, starting at end of January 2020. Round 2 starts in April.

Participant honoraria, attendant services, refreshments and TTC passes are provided.
