Innovative Media & The Workshop

The Workshop provides hardware, software, spaces, and expertise to help the VCU community produce creative work of all kinds. Practically, that means concentrating in three main areas: graphics, audio and video projects; the world of hands-on making; and exploring new and emerging technologies.

Contact Oscar Keyes, Multimedia Teaching & Learning Librarian for consultations and advice on using multimedia resources.
