Amherst Media Launches Capital Campaign For New "Technology Barn"

 Amherst Media kicked off its capital campaign Saturday, Nov. 4th, with a tent party featuring music, food and community supporters who turned out to celebrate on the site of what will soon be the organization’s new facility at the corner of Main and Gray streets.

“We’re so excited to be joining the community here,” said Demetria Shabazz, President of Amherst Media’s Board of Directors, signaling the non-profit’s move from its current location on College Street. “Our vision is to create a new resource for the Amherst community that can be a hub for government transparency, community media and meaningful civic dialogue.”

The event marked the launch of the drive for the capital fund to erect a 4000-square-foot, state-of-the-art media production facility featuring offices, studios, editing labs and conference space. Amherst Media operates three channels providing public, educational and government programming using a corps of community volunteers and college interns. It also provides training in video, audio and print media to the region. Read more of the story in The Collective.
