Deaf Professional Arts Network

Every year, D-PAN hosted a 3 days weekend workshop in Michigan to teach deaf students between the age of 10 to 18 on how to shoot a music video. It is a great hands-on experience for the youths to grow and expand their creativity, teamwork, leadership, and work ethic.

At the end of the workshop, the students screened their music video in front of their staff and parents and the end result was amazing! The parents were full of joy to see what their kids have done and gave D-PAN a huge praise! The D-PAN team truly enjoyed working with these students and would love to do more!
