For over 25 years the Community Media Center has acquired and maintained technology tools, media services and community venues to benefit the Grand Rapids community. Explore this site to discover how CMC's television, radio, IT, education and live theatre resources are here to help you.
The CMC is proud to announce the launch of www.GRTagTour.com, a smart phone walking tour of downtown Grand Rapids. The site, developed by the CMC IT team, is a collaboration between the CMC, Experience Grand Rapids, Grand Rapids Historical Commission, and Grand Rapids Downtown Alliance, and includes original illustrations by local artist Christy Beckwith. While there is an excellent desktop website, the project is made to be taken on the tour using your internet enabled smart phone. 13 sites for the different stops around downtown are easily accessible by simply scanning a QR code. Once there, you can learn fun facts, hear a story about the location, browse and submit photos, and more.
Major kudos to Aron Duby, CMC web developer. An outstanding job making the group's vision into reality.
