Image galleries: Youth Media Sanctuary

“Youth Media Sanctuary” is a new community arts project in North Central Troy, one of upstate New York’s most troubled urban areas. Based on a prototype youth media summer camp held in 2008 and a pilot peer-training program currently underway, this initiative 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.
