WHAT IS TOGETHER APART?
We may be in self-isolation, but we are in this together. The Covid-19 pandemic is distancing us, so Reel Youth brings you a fun & creative way to get together and make films. Community will never be cancelled. Connections will continue to grow! Lets discover how art can transform our social distancing into social solidarity.
Together Apart includes four online sessions (90 mins each) for participants of all ages to gather with Reel Youth facilitators over ZOOM and create community through the media arts. You will be introduced to principles of filmmaking as a tool for social change, and practice media production skills by shooting an original short film in self-isolation. You will need access to a smart phone or a video camera and computer in order to participate.
Online Gatherings will happen from 10:30am to 12pm PST on March 30th, March 31st, April 2nd, & April 6th
Once you sign up, we will email you the link for joining the first gathering. This is a FREE program!
THIS PROGRAM IS NOW FULL!
Stay tuned to our social media accounts for details about the next one.
