"Sight & Sound: Using Youth-Created Media to Explore Changing Communities"

Friday, March 27 - 1:00PM to 1:45PM
Gold Room

Drawing upon the strengths of youth while recognizing communities
and community partners as distinct resources, Preservation
LINK, Inc.'s (PLI) two programs, Point of View and Sight
& Sound, include creative curricula to engage youth in creating
media while encouraging them to explore their identity in
multiple contexts. Over the last six years, PLI has cultivated the
Point of View, a photojournalism program, to promote literacy,
peer collaborations, and media literacy among elementary and
middle school children. Sight & Sound: Using Youth –Created Media
to Explore Changing Communities will discuss the sociopolitical attitudes
and behavior among African American youth engaged in
PLI's most recent initiative-a multimedia skills training program
in South Dallas called Sight & Sound.
