The Fredonia Technology Incubator recently received a community grant from the Northern Chautauqua Community Foundation to further its Multimedia Innovation Design Studio.

The studio is a physical maker space located within the Fredonia Technology Incubator (FTI) that houses high-performance computers, specialized software, peripherals, video, and recording equipment designed for innovative cross-disciplinary collaborations and development.

The studio was inspired by a groundswell of Fredonia student interest in video game development, virtual reality, and other forms of interactive media that use and fuse the visual arts, animation, video recording, sound recording, writing, and coding. The funds will be used to purchase additional equipment, software and peripherals.
