I’m a fan of democratizing storytelling, and this event (2-5pm today) helps uncover otherwise hidden voices:
For its first public festival, the Bay Area Youth Media Network (BAYMN) will be showcasing youth-produced videos about social change with two specific categories on The 2012 Presidential Election and The High School Dropout Crisis on Saturday, October 13 at the Kaiser Center in Oakland from 2-5pm. It will be an afternoon dedicated to celebrate the great work of young people. There will be awards for the filmmakers as well as raffle prizes for the audience.
To attend the event, you must RSVP here.
