MEDIA USED FOR JUSTICE, EQUITY & RESPECT (M.U.J.E.R.)
Loisaida is very pleased to present the result of the 4-week intensive workshop in media literacy and production for young women and their allies at the early stage of their careers, within the launch of our long-awaited El Semillero/The Seedbed. The program is slated to be lead by local filmmaker Eden Martinez.
Loisaida’s Semillero presents the program: Media Used for Justice Equity and Respect (M.U.J.E.R.) We offer an opportunity for interested local individuals who are emergent or pre-emergent artists, media workers, and/or technologists, inventors, entrepreneurs and makers, ages 17 – 28. Participants will practice how to break down media messages, share their stories from the LES, develop strategic messaging and work on script writing, video production, and more.
Qualified participants receive a modest $250 stipend stipend for their 8-session commitment and consistent participation in the program. Participants were chosen by a committee of artists, professionals, educators, counselors and community leaders on a needs-basis assessment. Please do not hesitate to spread the word about this program, the program is now open: Click to register.
This program is funded by the New York City Council’s Cultural Immigrant Initiative, in partnership with the New York City’s Department of Cultural Affairs. We also want to acknowledge the support of our neighbors at The Door, for their work and we appreciate their commitment to the people they serve.
