Saturday, 2:15 pm - 3:45 pm -- Knott Hall 007

What is transformative media? How can you use transformative media production in a youth setting for political education, research, and leadership development? What are the advantages and challenges faced by groups incorporating media into their organizing work? In this interactive workshop, we will be answering these questions together by exploring youth-produced media and presenting findings from G.A.P.’s “Media in Action: Field Scan of Media and Youth Organizing in the U.S” report. Global Action Project (G.A.P.) is a NYC-based social justice youth leadership and media organization.
