Through workshops, training programs and cultural exchange projects the Global Media Project seeks to develop conscious content creators and consumers. We educate people of all ages of the power of media and how individual platforms can be used to close the information gap. Our workshops focus on storytelling, content development, technical skills and theory.
We work with universities so students can receive academic credit and maximize their education by critically thinking in a global context. By using new media and technology the new narratives exchanged during these trips create a global dialogue about culture, fashion, music, economics, politics and social issues.
We offer training workshops and courses in the below subjects:
- Adobe Premiere
- Digital Production
- Video Advocacy
- Deconstructing Media/Reconstructing Media
