Dive: Student Aid
Created in partnership with the Ryerson Leadership Lab and Sandbox Labs.
Dive: Student Aid is an interactive documentary that takes audiences deeper into the inner-workings of public policy design. A case study for the transformative policy story of Ontario’s ‘free’ post-secondary education is given new life as a 12-part series with the kind of narrative-driven storytelling normally reserved only for film and television. Dive: Student Aid punctuates first-hand accounts and interviews from political leaders, policymakers, journalists, students and critics with visual cues that prompt viewers to ‘dive’ deeper into extended interviews and additional reading. Viewers can watch and explore at their leisure, or as part of a structured course. Dive’s proprietary platform technology was developed by Sandbox Labs.
