CM | 2Add to My Log
The experience and perspectives of young people does not figure as prominently as it should in our discourse about the state and future of cities. Film and new media provide a rich and immediate way for youth to convey their insights. This program features a collection of incredible short works all created by - or for - young people ranging from middle school to young adults. Panelists include youth filmmakers and their adult allies working at the intersection of youth development and art.
