Practicum Students at Boston University’s Center for Digital Imaging Arts (CDIA) partnered with Children’s Hospital Boston, Zumix, a non-profit in East Boston aiming to build community through art, and other Boston-area non-profit and socially responsible organizations to provide photography, Web design, digital filmmaking and 3D animation productions. The Spring 2006 Practicum Screening, a celebratory event to showcase this work will be held from 3-5 p.m., Thursday, May 11, in Studio C at CDIA’s Waltham campus.

All CDIA students have an opportunity to participate in a practicum production. Students establish a partnership with a non-profit or socially responsible organization and provide digital media in the space of one month.

CDIA’s Certificate Programs are led by instructors who are practicing experts in their fields, and backed by the resources and reputation of Boston University’s College of Communication.
