In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Recently, Watershed Productions collaborated with SelfDesign High School to produce TEDxSelfDesignHigh, where x = independently organized TED event. Check out Elena Banfield’s presentation and spoken word performance among other youth presentations here on Youtube.
Kootenay Association of Science and Technology recently published a profile on Watershed Productions. Click on post title and then click here: KAST Business Profile.
KAST works to foster a culture that values science, technology, innovation and entrepreneurship as activities vital to maintaining and enhancing the competitiveness of the region. This past fall, Watershed Productions travelled around the Kootenays to Trail, Rossland, Castlegar and Crawford Bay, to deliver filmmaking workshops in partnership with KAST. Dozens of youth across our region learned how to plan, shoot and edit their own short videos. The creativity of our local youth is inspiring and many youth were excited to have the chance to do something that is not always offered in their school.
