The 970 Studio
The 970 Studio will be a collaborative workspace open to local businesses and high school students to build community relationships with one another, while working on mutually beneficial projects. The studio will help students transition into, and experience, the workforce through student internships and job opportunities. The space will be equipped with the necessary tools and resources to be able to work on projects related to graphic design, web design, social media, photography, video production, and audio production. Until now students did not have access to these tools and resources after school hours, on the weekends, or during the summer. 970 Studio will provide students that opportunity and businesses and non-profits that resource. The space itself will be donated by the Proximity Space in Montrose and will be housed inside Proximity Space at 210 East Main Street. The 970 Studio program will be managed by the Montrose Chamber of Commerce.
Director of Creativity at the Montrose Chamber of Commerce, Kelsey Doering, thinks that, “The 970 Studio is important for High School students because it gives them real world experience with real customers. It gives them a setting to work on people interaction skills as well as project management and portfolio building. To have a public space to meet with their clients is incredibly valuable, to not only the student, but the client as well.” Some of the projects local business and non-profits can seek help with are: professional head shots, logo design, brochures, social media, pamphlets, professional presentations, business cards, audio recordings, video recordings and so much more.
