Light House Studio and Ting’s gigabit fiber Internet

Light House Studio

When you give a child a camera, you can shine a light on a whole community. That kind of sums up the thinking behind Light House Studio, a non-profit located in Charlottesville, VA. Founded in 1999 by a group of local filmmakers, artists and educators, Light House has helped youth create thousands of documentaries, dramas and animated films.

The organization’s main focus is providing mentored workshops in digital filmmaking and exhibition opportunities for their young filmmakers. By enabling youth to learn, by hand, Light House students are challenged to be active participants in the media and storytellers in their own right.

You might have noticed we love all things multimedia here at Ting, and video happens to be a passion of ours too. We provide a Ting gigabit Internet connection at the Light House Studio and the Vinegar Hill Theatre, so today’s young documentarians, filmmakers and animators can work and access valuable digital resources at the speed of light.

We had the chance to chat with Executive Director Deanna Gould, Program Director Joe Vena and Senior Teaching Artist Aaron McGinnis at Light House Studio, and learn about the amazing work this team does in the community.

MAGIC and the power of gigabit Internet

Mid-Atlantic Gigabit Innovation Collaboratory (MAGIC) is a local non-profit in Westminster, MD. MAGIC is dedicated to making sure the economic development potential of the Westminster Fiber Network (WFN) is fully realized.

What does it mean for the potential of fiber infrastructure to be realized? We got the chance to catch up with Amy Rupp, Executive Director of MAGIC who walked us through all of MAGIC’s initiatives for seeing the power of gigabit Internet through and bringing the positive impact of fiber to the local economy, jobs, education, healthcare and so much more.

McGuffey Art Center artists get crazy fast fiber Internet from Ting

Art is made to push boundaries. That’s nothing new, but when artists get their hands on the latest tools, tech and Internet access, they can continue their important work and even grow into boundary-pushing small businesses.

McGuffey Art Center enables that exact kind of work. One of the oldest artist-run associations in the country, McGuffey makes its home in the old McGuffey Elementary School building located at the corner of West Market Street and 2nd Street North West, just off the Downtown Mall in Charlottesville, VA. Here, 40 studios, five galleries and a gift shop are open to the public six days a week, free of charge.

Ting’s partnership with the Carroll County Public Library

The Westminster Branch of the Carroll County Public Library (CCPL) is embedded in the community of Westminster and Carroll County at large. The library has been a hub from its early beginnings, evolving over the years from your standard library to community leader and soon-to-be makerspace site for innovation, collaboration and connection.

We had the chance to catch up with Lynn Wheeler, Executive Director of the Carroll County Public Library, and talk about the library’s history, present and future as well as Ting’s commitment to Exploration Commons, a community makerspace, collaboration space and culinary center to be opened at the Westminster CCPL in the spring of 2020.

Holly Springs High School’s Robotics program

Engaging students in STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Math) subjects goes beyond the classroom. Organizations, administrators, teachers and student leaders are coming up with new and exciting ways to help youth acquire life-changing interests and skills that will help them build work readiness.

At Holly Springs High School, the Hawktimus Prime Robotics Team does just that. This local student team designs and builds new robots every year to enter into state and national robotics competitions.

We got the chance to catch up with Andrew Pratt, the team’s 2017-2018 Sponsorship Captain, and chat a bit about the program’s history, their involvement in FIRST competitions (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) and their sponsorship from Ting Internet.

Do good together

When we come to a town, we don’t just bring crazy fast fiber Internet and its inherent benefits. We aim to serve the community with more than just way better Internet.

We partner with Ting town community leadership, members and organizations to support important community resources. Usually, that means a free connection to the crazy fast fiber network and can also mean sponsorship, advocacy and partnering to do good in the community.

We don’t think of gigabit Internet as a luxury. We think of it as a necessary step toward a shared future and we believe in access for all.

We don’t just build a network and then retreat back to head office. We believe in becoming a part of the communities we serve.
