Community investment

The support of our Philadelphia community is a critical part of ChatterBlast’s success story, and we’re committed to giving back.

GroundFloor Studios

GroundFloor Studios is a unique social enterprise partnership that combines the community-based youth media work of Big Picture Alliance and the industry expertise of ChatterBlast Media. In addition to a rentable space, this partnership will allow both organizations to create workforce pathways in multimedia, production and offer programs, workshops and events that empower young creatives of all ages and amplify community voices.

Located on the first floor of the Philadelphia Building in the heart of Center City, this accessible location near City Hall, cultural institutions, and production companies gives youth a seat at the table, access to professional networks, and the opportunity to present their work to civic and industry leaders.

For the past three years, ChatterBlast has earned recognition as a member of The Philadelphia Foundation’s Civic 50 Greater Philadelphia, which honors “civic-minded businesses that are using their time, talent and resources to drive social impact in their communities.” We’re proud to stand among local organizations across industries that are equally committed to community investment.
