This Summer, July 21- August 31st, 2014, 17 young people from throughout NYC were employed at GAP to learn new media technologies, advance their political education and team-build. Young people were continuing to create content and learn critical new media skills in the production of a web application “The Media History Timeline;” a curriculum tool to help users make connections between historical moments, media and popular culture and our personal stories.

This past Tuesday night, hundreds of Global Action Project's friends, family, community members, and supporters came together to celebrate the power of young people making media and art for justice for their communities. MC’s Sylver Gold and Hatim Muhamed took us through a night filled with poetry, song, dance, mixed media and 5 new youth-produced films. We left feeling connected in our struggles and inspired by our resilience and creativity. If you were in the audience, you engaged firsthand in the important conversations youth producers are creating with their media this year. Donate today to sustain this work!
