Media Labs

Media Labs are three-week workshops that give you hands on experience in film, audio, and design. Join other students and be taught by experts in their field who care about you and your creative vision. This is also a great way to learn about Spy Hop and the courses we offer.

*The registration fee is non-refundable. Spy Hop exists as a vehicle for youth to engage in their communities and tell their stories through the use of digital media. We believe that all young people should have this opportunity, without any barriers.
