CityLab was the first installment of CoLab, a youth-led platform for digital storytelling and collaborative media experiments at Elsewhere—a living museum in downtown Greensboro, NC. Over the course of 10 weeks, CityLab worked with high school age youth from around the Triad of North Carolina to explore digital storytelling, and produce media experiments on issues ranging from audio experiments exploring the Citizen’s United Case, video works about bullying, and photographic essays on climate change and imagination.
