In conjunction with the release of MAKERS: Women Who Make America, the KCTS9 Media Lab provided a platform for youth to tell the stories of local women who have inspired them. In partnership with several youth organizations, including the RecTech Youth Media Institute at Delridge CC, participants learned storytelling skills as well as how to shoot, produce and edit video in to tell a digital story. RecTech instructors helped with mentoring and instruction.
RecTech teens Ishwaq Dakane and Allison Chaboni each created films about women they look up to. These photos were taken at the final event at KCTS9 on April 12th where all the Young Makers screened their films. We hope to have their films up on our VIMEO site soon and will post the URL when they are ready to be viewed.
