Access to Media Education Society

Access to Media Education Society

AMES uses digital media and artistic collaboration to engage marginalized youth in personally and socially transformative storytelling practices.

We developed the Standing Ground interactive web-map that showcases BC-based stories of environmental stewardship and struggle for the Access to Media Education Society. Embedding videos and stories directly into the map give a site visitor the context that helps them connect the story with a real place instead of just the name of a town. The Standing Ground map makes sharing local stories easy, and viewing them in context easier.
