Come check out G.A.P.’s workshop at the Allied Media Conference
:Politicizing Pop Culture by Youth and for Youth-
In this interactive, hands-on, youth and adult led workshop, participants will be exploring how to engage youth in political education and media production through the use of popular culture. We will analyze current pop culture shows like Heroes and Gossip Girl and re-frame/re-write these stories to reflect our social justice values. Participants will work collaboratively using cameras to script, shoot and act out a short scene that will be screened for the larger group. Hope to see you at AMC!
