Bring the Peace

Youth producers in the Baltimore Speaks Out! Program at Patterson Park Public Charter School researched and discovered that violence kills over 1.5 million people a year worldwide (World Health Organization). They also discovered that 1 in 4 teachers see nothing wrong with bullying and only intervene 4% of the time (DoSomething.org).

After discussing problems of violence and bullying in their own communities, they decided to create poems and take pictures that express their concerns. Students in this workshop learned all parts of the production process by researching their topic, writing self reflections, taking pictures in their community, recording audio and video, and presenting their work to their peers. What are some actions you can take to prevent bullying and violence in your own community?

A Way of Life

Da’El Clapperton created this digital story as part of Wide Angle’s fall 2011 Mentoring Video Project curriculum. Here is what Da’El has to say about her film:

Hi, my name is Da’El, and for the past two months, I’ve been working on a digital story about my religion. My film goes into some of the laws I follow and the practices my family keeps, as well as my personal feelings about the way that I live. There are a few places where I quote from our religious text. My goal is simply to explain why I live as I do, so please don’t be offended. I even managed to get some input from my friends and other young people from my congregation. I worked really hard on this and this is my first video I’ve made all myself, so I really hope you enjoy it.
