NYC Immigrant Youth Stories: A Youth Participatory Research and Media Art Project
School of Art, Digital Arts
K-12 Seed Grantee 2019-2020
NYC Immigrant Youth Stories: A Youth Participatory Research and Media Art Project blends participatory research methodologies, oral history processes, and the media arts to further understand the lived experiences of Latinx, immigrant youth at Gregorio Luperón High School and empower them to respond to social injustices through media art. Students will be guided in conceptualizing and producing oral histories, photo essays, and video works as they participate in a series of workshops. A compilation of the generated materials will subsequently be presented as a digital archive.
