MediaSanctuary Archive

Our history starts with the Hudson Mohawk Independent Media Center. Since our founding in 2005 at The Sanctuary for Independent Media, we have produced an MediaSanctuary Archive of hundreds of events:

Check out “Jerry’s House produced by Uptown Summer ’16 youth (see production shoot pic above) with Sanctuary community leader Deacon Jerry Ford.

“Jerry’s House” tells the story of a family forced out of a deteriorating rental “now abandoned,” with a happy ending of owning a home.

Directed by Youth Media Sanctuary producers Kai Griffin, Bryanna Mangual, Diajah Grier, Milan Miles, and Andrew Pintro, with Media Mentors Jamel Mosely, Kathy High and Branda Miller. Produced by Youth Media Sanctuary at The Sanctuary for Independent in Troy, NY. Supported in part by Breathing Lights and the Troy Drug Free Community Coalition.

This is just one of hundreds of videos we have produced from events, workshops and community gathering over the years… check out our MediaSanctuary Youtube channel to diverse playlists documenting the Sanctuary’s herstory!
