REDLAB (ReVisioning Differences Mobile Media Arts Lab) is both a physical space at the University of Guelph, and a state-of-the-art mobile media lab comprising sound and video recording equipment and 15 MacBook Pro computers loaded with video production and editing software.
We work to support and equip academics, non-profit organizations, and professional networks with cutting edge technological tools and methodologies to tell meaningful stories.
