Neighborhood: West Philadelphia
Change Partner: Asian Arts Initiative
Discipline: Media Arts
Yowei will work with minority youth to produce audio stories that examine their individual lives, schools, and communities. Through intensive radio production workshops, youth radio apprentices will learn the basics of pitching stories, interviewing, field recording, script writing, editing, and voicing. The stories seek to promote intercultural and intergenerational dialogue, as well as better understanding about young people’s lives and their contributions.
Listen here to one of the radio show that was produced.
