30th Anniversary Timeline: Leading the Field


Since our first professional development workshops for teachers 30 years ago, we’ve worked to expand student media arts production in schools across New York City - and beyond. We worked with teachers to not only bring more media making into the curriculum, but to create student-centered classrooms animated by student voice, creative expression, and inquiry into the social conditions of their lives.
