This June, we offer community members the opportunity to learn to use professional cameras, conduct interviews with audio equipment, and edit a finished piece using Premiere Pro.

Participants will create original documentary-based works and, in the process, find their own voice, engage meaningfully with neighbors, and develop marketable skills.

This workshop is led by two award-winning female documentary filmmakers.

  • Every Thursday, and Friday evenings, and Saturday afternoons in June —-beginning Saturday, June 1st.
  • Selected participants also receive a stipend for their commitment, consistent attendance, and participation throughout the program. 
  • There will be a public screening at the end of the workshop.
  • If you are between the ages of 18 and 35 and consider yourself an ally of women, persons of color, and the LGTBQ+ communities, an emergent or pre-emergent creator, media enthusiast, maker/inventor, entrepreneur, or creative, then you are all encouraged to APPLY TODAY!

Media Used for Justice Equity and Respect (M.U.J.E.R.) is a program that brings a unique opportunity for youth ages 18+ to young adults of up to 35 years to lead an independent media production project working hands-on at the Loisaida Center’s Multimedia space.

This program is funded in part by the Department of Youth and Community Development in partnership with the New York City Council and the Office of Council-member Carlina Rivera, among other generous supporters.
