After School Spring 2012
“White Noise, Blind Spot” is an after school arts and technology intensive and paid leadership opportunity for NYC area high school students. Each year students in Eyebeam’s After School Atelier (ASA) program are given the opportunity to work on projects cooperatively with Eyebeam Residents and Fellows, professional mentors, staff, and their peers.
This year we are teaming up with journalism training and production institute People’s Production House and The New School to produce web based, media rich stories on some of our local community heros. We will mine the streets of Chelsea like urban archaelogists to uncover lost histories, local secrets, and generational wisdom.
ASA 2012 made possible through support from The Hive Digital Media Learning Fund, formerly the New Youth City Learning Network Fund, The Robert Bowne Foundation, and The Johnson Family Foundation.
People’s Production House is a media arts and journalism training and production institute focused on producing stories that bring unheard voices to the fore. Recognized for the unique perspectives they provide, the work of our trainees has received many journalism awards and their reportage has been regularly broadcast through media outlets such as the BBC, PBS Newshour, the Australian Broadcast Corporation, The Nation, Mother Jones, The Huffington Post, ProPublica, NPR, Democracy Now!, GRIT TV, the Pacifica Network, The New York Times, and more. http://www.peoplesproductionhouse.org
