The Skill Engineer Ltd is proud to announce the upcoming launch of Digi Van, an innovative initiative aimed at empowering young people to create digital content that reflects their voices and community narratives.
The Digi Van project, funded by the NSW Government Regional Youth Investment Program, will guide participants towards creative digital pathways and future employment opportunities.
Digi Van, a fully equipped multimedia mobile vehicle, will target youth, including “at-risk” youth, First Nations people, and individuals with disabilities. The goal is to facilitate their economic, social, and civic inclusion through skill development.
Through the Digi Van program, participants will have the opportunity to learn a comprehensive suite of multimedia skills, including recording, mixing, filming, sound production, performance, diction, live-streaming, iphoneography, and videography.
Maggie MacFie, Chief Executive Officer of Skill Engineer Ltd., stated that the beneficiaries of Digi Van are young contributors hailing from both the Central Coast and North Sydney region. She emphasised the pivotal role played by multimedia in shaping their self-perception and their engagement within the broader community.
“It allows them to interpret the world, its values, and ideas, fostering a greater sense of understanding and active participation. Media is an essential component of modern culture, entertainment, and societal transformation.”
Participants will have the opportunity to tell their individual stories and lived experiences, connect with the community through engaging narratives, interact with fellow young people, and improve their multimedia and work-related skills.
Over the course of the project, which spans from March 2023 to February 2025, Digi Van aims to produce and upload hundreds of stories utilising various multimedia modes to The Skill Engineer’s media platform.
This initiative showcases the region’s commitment to digital progress by granting access to new technologies to all regional youth, regardless of their postcode, thus positioning them favorably for future job opportunities.
