Media Arts and Education: "Be the Media" Workshops Present & Past
Our "Be the Media" workshop series provides local artists, producers, and citizen journalists with opportunities to acquire and improve the skills necessary for successful and powerful independent media-making. We offer an interdisciplinary approach to diverse media arts practices with new technologies, with core focus on creative practice and artistry. We build a local base for media reform and media literacy, training people to produce their own media and create their own media advocacy. We strive to create a community of artists and citizens through media arts, education and exchange.
Presented with Hudson Mohawk Independent Media Center, with support from the New York State Council on the Arts.

"Youth Media Sanctuary" is a community arts project in North Central Troy, in collaboration with the Missing Street Ministry. This peer-training project is designed to teach multimedia skills to young people on the margins of city life and to help develop urgently needed independent local voices in our economically devastated neighborhood. "Youth Media Sanctuary" builds on the expertise and trust developed through our previous community media arts and education collaborations to create sustainable infrastructure for local youth productions in Troy.
Our Youth Media Sanctuary producers are continuing with a third season of cutting edge work! Click here to see the trailer of their Fall 2010 piece.
