AWAAM seeking facilitators in video, web publishing and radio production
Arab Women Active in the Arts and Media is seeking to partner with organizations or individuals for their weekend program for young women. They are seeking mentors to facilitate workshops in three areas: video, web publishing and radio production. Each mentor will work with three-four high-school aged young women on a tri-weekly production schedule. The program runs through May. Funding for mentors is possible, but not guaranteed. Please contact Mona at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
AWAAM provides comprehensive leadership opportunities in community organizing, art and media skills to young women and girls. Our goal is to empower a generation of young women with the community organizing and media skills necessary to act as leaders within their communities, which have endured increasing hardship in recent years. As Arab and Muslim women, we endeavor to position ourselves as producers rather than objects, of the mass media. Our leadership/media programs are the seedbed from which our membership grows to take leadership, developing campaigns and programs in AWAAM and in the community at large.
