Workshop #3

This past workshop our council — and seven non-council teens— had their fourth workshop with an amazing group of adult mentors. Our topics of conversation revolved around the emotions and idea of "failure" that we feel during the creative process, and the benefits of collective and collaborative media-making.

Southern Letterpress' Jessica Petersan helped our four young female writers turn their poem—written with board member Kelly Harris—into a beautiful piece of art. WWNO's Mallory Falk worked with Sylvia and Alex to finalize a guiding project question, write interview questions, and set up scenes. Jason Foster and David Bear worked hands on with Rain to storyboard his short film, and Ariya Martin and Elena Ricci — of the collective Southerly Gold—took 10 photographers on a walking tour of the neighborhood.
