EAST Animating Democracy Information Session

This fall, Scarborough Arts introduces our newest installment of the EAST program: EAST Animating Democracy. Aimed at exploring democratic processes, the program seeks to put a spotlight on urgent issues in our neighbourhoods and communities from the youth’s perspective, and animate these issues by creating a documentary or a photo exhibition with the guidance of field professionals.

Scarborough Arts is seeking brazen and passionate documentarians and photographers aged 16 to 24 years old to join this new and exciting program. Wherever the participants’ interests lie — whether on poverty, homelessness, youth unemployment, accessibility, homophobia, racism, etc. — the program will provide the participants with guidance, structure, mentorship, and the right tools to create a high-quality product. The program will also teach skills in: critical thinking, curating, digital documentation, post-production, research and script writing, and collaboration.

EAST Animating Democracy runs from November 2015 to May 2016.
