Race, Representation and Youth: Media Literacy
October – December, 2000
Race, Representation and Youth is an artistic, social and cultural platform for critical communication in relationship to media literacy and current Balboa High School curriculum. By infusing ideals and concepts around the subject of media literacy with European literature, post-colonial American history and media communications, RRY aims to provide a setting for youth to produce media with new eyes, new mouths and new hands. For eight weeks students will dissect and analyze media and media-makers by learning definitions, vocabulary and outlining media practices in a hands-on work environment. Students will gain technical skills in film and video production, as well as discovering and furthering artistic abilities through other disciplines, i.e, performance, visual arts, writing, poetry, web-production etc.
