Be The Media! and Kitchen Sanctuary Workshop with Ellie Markovitch: “The Story of Beans”

April 9, 2013 @ 4:00 am 6:00 pm EDT

Digital storytelling meets DIY cooking as we learn and document how to use a pressure cooker to cook dry beans from scratch and on a budget. Please join food artist and multimedia storyteller Ellie Markovitch for a food and digital storytelling workshop. While the beans cook, create media, share, connect! 

We will learn to use a pressure cooker to make fast and delicious bean recipes on a budget. Please bring your favorite bean recipes in a recipe card, photos and stories. While the beans cook, we will create media, share and connect.

Be The Media! workshops teach multimedia skills to community members in order 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 video, radio and journalism.

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.
