Uptown Summer 2016

July 5, 2016 @ 8:00 am 8:00 pm EDT

Now in our 6th year of collaboration with Rensselaer County Summer Youth Employment, Uptown Summer begins. Uptown Summer is a 5-week program that gives voice to North Troy’s teens. Our ten students work as Neighborhood Storytellers and Environmental Stewards. Each day, we hold a planning meeting, then spend the morning working greening our block in the Collard City Growers gardens. At lunch we eat healthy meals that feature our urban homegrown harvest, and our afternoons are spent producing original media…

This summer, youth created documentaries on abandoned buildings, which were featured in the public art project Breathing Lights.

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.
