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.
