30th Anniversary Timeline: Youth Around The World
Updated: Dec 22, 2021
YOUTH MEDIA AROUND THE WORLD
Over the past three decades, EVC students and staff members have travelled coast to coast and around the world filming and presenting their work, and teaching other young people to tell powerful stories and make their voices heard through their documentaries. As young media artists and activist citizens of the world, they’ve travelled in a spirit of hope and solidarity to Minnesota to film the Hormel meatpackers strike; New Orleans to document survivors rebuilding after Hurricane Katrina; Washington, DC to screen their film at the People’e Inaugural Ball; Belfast to lead workshops for Protestant ad Catholic youth; New Delhi to give video workshops for youth workers and teachers; Soweto to teach youth to create public service announcements on teen pregnancy and AIDS education; and to Beijing, Tokyo, London, Berlin, Stockholm, Istanbul and dozens of other places to present in conferences and festivals.
