Push Play: DIY Youth Media Storytelling

June 2, 2017 - June 30, 2017

Push Play: DIY Youth Media Storytelling
Presented by the Community Mixtape Project

The Community Mixtape Project harnesses the power of media and technology-based arts education to amplify the individual and collective stories of Pittsburgh-area youth. Through our workshops, youth learn digital music-making, creative writing, podcasting, and zine-making skills and use these skills to create shareable media that reflects their own experiences, interests, and creativity.

The work featured in the Community Mixtape Project’s Push Play: DIY Youth Media Storytelling was written, produced, and recorded by Pittsburgh-area youth from both the Women’s Center & Shelter of Greater Pittsburgh and Assemble. Over the course of 3 years, facilitators Amos Levy and Jess Gold worked with more than 120 youth at individual workshops and a summer intensive to share media-making skills and help guide the creation of Community Mixtape Project content.

This gallery show is a unique opportunity to share youth stories and creative work in a fun and engaging way. Through interactive family workshops, a live podcast taping, and youth performances, we also hope to give public the opportunity to participate in Community Mixtape Project media-making!
