Celebrate the Sixth Annual New York City Grassroots Media Conference (NYCGMC): HOPE TO ACTION
Youth media screening with Youth Media Reporter, Thursday, May 14!
The Sixth Annual New York City Grassroots Media Conference (NYCGMC): HOPE TO ACTION is just around the corner—May 30th!
Before we kick off this important media event, we are dedicating a special night to the invaluable contributions YOUTH make to grassroots/independent media.
Thursday, May 14, 2009, 6-8pm
Academy for Educational Development
100 Fifth Avenue, between 15th & 16th Street
(L,N,Q,R,W,4,5,6 to Union Square; F,V to 6th Ave)
The NYCGMC, in partnership with Youth Media Reporter, will host a screening and discussion of short youth video works. This event will give youth media creators an opportunity to have their work seen and a chance to network with other members of the New York media community.
As this year’s conference theme is HOPE TO ACTION, we are screening new media projects that address issues of activism, social justice, culture and community empowerment. Following the screening, youth producers engage in a Q&A and panel discussion of their works.
Please join us to support and encourage young people to continue following their dreams.
