The two day version of “Through Our Eyes” at The Third Place Gallery:
“Through Our Eyes”, a collaboration between Gazillion Strong and Line Break, is a video production and distribution program for teens who are a part of the LGBTQ, adoptee, foster care, immigrant, and POC (people of color) communities. A shortened, 2 day version of the program for 5-10 teens will be held at the Third Place Gallery on Saturday, January 31 and Sunday, February 1.
Participants will receive an introduction to storytelling, filming, editing, and distributing their videos through the creation of websites, and engagement of social media and local, state, and national media outlets. They will walk away from the program having developed a video(s) and website(s). Ultimately, the participants will be introduced to a powerful way through which they can advocate for what is important to them and to others with whom they identify.
