RECONNECTING ... Over the past few days, the Midpen Media Center celebrated Community Media Week with a handful of events that encouraged the public to think about the role community media plays in our lives. It was also a celebration of Free Speech Week. The organization welcomed local residents to its studios at 900 San Antonio Road on Wednesday for an open house, which marked its official reopening. "During the height of the COVID pandemic, we supported our producers remotely so they could continue to deliver important new content. We also used the time to listen to our community and reassess how we can use our space to better serve its needs," Midpen Media CEO and executive director Keri Stokstad said in a statement. "We're introducing revamped areas that will support greater collaboration for the local creative community and provide space for media makers and other creative types to meet and build community, learn new skills, create great art and make new friends." Midpen also hosted a VIP watch party over Zoom featuring some of their producers' work on Thursday and plans to screen free public service announcements for local nonprofits on Friday.
