Global Action Project has been named a semi-finalist in the ARTSFWD Business Unusual National Challenge. If we receive enough votes we will be in a position to win $35,000 of grant money and in-kind consulting support.
Convening community members who are working at the intersection of education justice/reform and media justice this dialogue features grassroots activists and organizers who are using media and culture to advance the fight for educational justice.
Global Action Project (G.A.P.) is pleased to announce that after months of planning we have launched a new Co-Director structure on March 1, 2013, ushering in a dynamic phase of organizational and programmatic growth and shared leadership. This has been a long-held aspiration for us and with direction from the board, staff, and young people, we believe this is a powerful step forward in G.A.P.’s capacity to support youth media and social justice.
G.A.P. will be in Chicago March 14-16. We’ll be connecting with folks and on many panels at the Digital Media Learning Conference. And, separately, we’ll be running a Framing and Messaging workshop for youth organizers from around the country. If you’re at the DML 2013 come say hi!
Here’s the breakdown of what we’ll be doing while we’re in Chicago:
Global Action Project's SupaFriends is a LGBTQQ youth video crew in New York City. We explore queer history, take pride in our identities, discuss issues in the community and build power by educating ourselves and others through media. Meets Saturdays from February to June. To Join and Learn More Come to the Open House on Saturday., February 9th at 1pm.
ArtsFwd, an online magazine focused on learning about innovation strategies for arts and culture organizations, has published G.A.P. Executive Director Meghan McDermott's article about innovative practices at Global Action Project.
We are now accepting applications for two of our 2013 programs. In G.A.P. programs you will work with a group to make videos that will make an impact around issues that are important to you and your community. You don’t need any media experience to join.
Our college prep program Smarties begins this fall—the critical time for support and college applications. We need your help to make that happen. Contribute $20, $50, $100 or $500 to help us reach our goal and ensure that young people have the support they need to move forward.
