The Dignity Project Screening
The Dignity Project is a digital storytelling project for teenagers to learn about media and video making and editing. Our students have been working very hard on their projects and they are excited to share them with a public audience. All are welcome to attend this free event to experience the media skills of New York's up and coming generation as they use the skills they learned this summer to empower one another and themselves.
