Disrupting Dominant Media Narratives

Youth Filmmakers, Eric DeMeulenaere & Angelique Webster
N-CITE Community Media
Friday, 2:15 pm to 3:45 pm -- Rm. E-200

The mainstream media constructs problematic and deficit-based narratives of urban youth. N-CITE Community Media develops youth as critical media producers who create documentary films to disrupt these dominant narratives. This workshop will bring critical youth media producers to share their processes for producing disruptive documentaries, to examine their films, and to engage folks in a critical media literacy workshop that furthers the disruption and bridges the distance between Worcester youth and allies near and far.
