Knight Foundation and the Long Beach Woman’s City Club.  The Studio is equipped with the latest technology and will serve as a “makerspace” for the community to develop new skills through workshops, learn how to design 3D objects and create digital content.  In addition, The Studio will be the first satellite location for PADNET members to create, edit and submit video for the local public access television channel as well as check-out film equipment. Remember to RSVP for the grand opening by April 10, 2014 to or call 562-628-2441. The Studio will be open to the public beginning Friday, April 18, 2014.  For more information please visit
