The WGCU Move to Include Initiative prioritizes education and communication of, about and with people with disabilities in Southwest Florida. Via a multiplatform approach that includes television and radio programming, digital content and community events, WGCU informs the southwest Florida community on accessibility and inclusion in Arts, Sports & Recreation, Emergency Preparedness, Workforce Development, Education and the 2020 Election. WGCU takes on these topics through the lens of the ADA with a focus on educating the community at large about organizations and programs that serve people with disabilities, along with the challenges and inequities they continue to face.
WGCU Hosts Digital Storytelling Workshop
The storytelling workshop at WGCU, held Friday, Nov. 1 through Sunday, Nov. 3, 2019 in the Myra Janco Daniels Public Media Center on the FGCU campus, turned young people into filmmakers and public media staff into mentors.
“Buddies” with intellectual and developmental disabilities were paired with school-age “Peer Buddies” for the workshop. Five teams of two each created a short video on a topic of their choice, doing the interviewing, filming and editing themselves with the help of a member of the WGCU production crew. They did all of their work on kits consisting of an iPad, a tripod and bracket, headphones and two lavalier microphones.
