A media project bringing together private partners, a university development lab, and the community-at-large is launching in Carbondale. Creatordale, an independent Carbondale media project, will hold its first meeting at the Dunn-Richmond Center at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 20. The inaugural meeting will be to present the framework of the Creatordale project and invite feedback from attendees.

The grassroots project will accomplish this mission by rallying the resources and talents of individuals and institutions. Through the combination of resources by SIU Digital Xpressions Lab and Brand Advocacy Group, and an invitation to the community-at-large, they hope to spur the development of a new digital media production industry in the Carbondale region.

Organizers say they are looking for creators with any kind of background, professional or amateur, including: writers, actors, content creators, videographers, graphic and visual designers, costumers, game developers, podcasters, online personalities, businesses, and anyone who would like to integrate content creation and media into their work.
