Students living in low-income areas often do not have access to up-to-date technology programs and equipment, limiting their access to many creative and academically enriching opportunities. Streetside Stories connects students with technology through a variety of media-arts programs that blend storytelling with digital creation, developing students’ skills with both multimedia tools and self-expression.
The Tech Tales program sends Streetside’s teaching artists into school classrooms to train students in media arts, helping them to create digital movies that tell stories using their own words. Streetside Stories would like to bring its mobile media lab to a local classroom of seventh-grade students. The lab equips junior filmmakers with digital cameras, microphones, recording equipment, and laptops with iMovie. During the course of a month-long program, students will get to stretch creative muscles as they design and build their own movies. The completed projects will blend storytelling with original drawings and video, reflecting students’ newly developed technological and storytelling skills.
Join G-Team and donate $8 to help improve students’ technology skills through multimedia storytelling. If G-Team members raise $400, Streetside Stories can bring its mobile media-arts lab to a local classroom of seventh graders for a month-long program. Each additional $400 raised will fund a media lab program for another classroom. All donations will be matched up to $400 by Streetside Stories board member Laura Valdez.
