DDC 2003 worked to empower participating high school students with the knowledge and means to affect change responsibly and creatively. During the course, from July 7-24, participants were divided into teams of four and partnered with local activist artists and artist collectives. They used a variety of software and hardware applications in order to heighten public awareness about specific issues relevant to their lives and developed these concepts in three-tier communication campaigns. These small-group sessions helped the students develop highly innovative forms of expression such as blogging (personal web logs), contagious media (use of emails or web sites designed to be evocative, forwarded from friend to friend, spreading virally) and guerilla broadcasting (use of phones with audio/video capabilities and community access television networks).
