Scribe Video Center

​​Scribe’s mission is to explore, develop and advance the use of digital media as an artistic means for creative expression and as tools for progressive social change. Scribe is a metaphor for the use of media to record significant historical and contemporary concerns and events, with emphasis on individuals and community groups that have limited resources and have been denied access to media production technology because of race, ethnicity, age, income or gender. We encourage projects that advance dialogue, enhance collaboration across cultures, and challenge traditional notions of the under-represented. We are unique in that we make the media-arts a realistic pursuit for those in underserved communities and those who have limited arts access due to lack of financial resources, age, language and other constraints. The great joy of Scribe is seeing how first time media-makers, such as an older adult who might not have considered herself a radio broadcaster, or a young person who never thought he could make a film, can create a compelling piece that not only has an important story to tell, but also is a work of art.
