Be The Media! Workshop with Astra Taylor: Media and Activism
April 24, 2019 @ 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm EDT
In an informal conversation about the creative process, Astra Taylor will share personal strategies as a filmmaker, writer, and political organizer to activate a people’s platform for organizing through diverse media formats.
Be the Media! workshops teach multimedia skills to community members to develop urgently needed independent local voices. Our goal is to empower the public through independent media making, supplying them with the tools to tell their own stories through different mediums of media including radio, video and journalism.
Co-sponsored by iEAR Presents and Arts Department of the School of HASS, and made possible in part by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
We are committed to lowering the barriers to access for events at The Sanctuary for Independent Media. For people who are hard of hearing or deaf, blind or low-vision, or whose physical limitations can interfere with a satisfying experience, let us know two weeks in advance so we can make appropriate arrangements.
