AOC Community Media is a hub for those wanting to document events and issues in our area. Executive Director Ed Bowie joined us on Acadiana's Morning News on Friday.

Each Spring and Fall semester, AOC hosts a series of rotating workshops and events to educate the local community about digital media production. We are currently seeking creative, skilled session leaders to share their passion with a group of interested community members.

Sessions generally run 60 minutes to 90 minutes depending on attendance size and subject matter, and are conducted on weekday evenings (Saturdays possible):

AOC Lagniappe Workshops: A series of workshops, presentations and classes offered to AOC members (and non-members) that teach and develop media skills of all types. Popular topics include, but not limited to: Acting, Animation, Photography, Lighting, Voiceover, Podcasting, Special Effects Makeup, and Virtual Reality. 60-90 minutes. $50 per session.

AOC Teen MUSE Program: A free after-school teen program (for ages 12-17) that introduces local youth to various forms of art, media, and technology. Mondays, 4:30-6:00pm. 90 minutes. $75 per session.
