Core Programs:

  • Mentoring: Partnerships with key media agencies meeting the needs of participants by providing mentoring in front of and/or behind the camera.
  • Media Arts: Opportunities to create and promote artist projects through exhibitions and screenings.
  • Outreach Program: Artists, filmmakers, theater, music and media arts sectors come together to discuss what they are experiencing in their specific fields.
