The 2018 NATIVE YOUTH MULTIMEDIA WORKSHOP is expanding its youth multimedia workshop to offer year round curriculum. Since 2009, the NATIVE YOUTH MULTI-MEDIA WORKSHOP has travelled to reservations throughout North America and Indigenous communities throughout the world to teach indigenous youth multimedia skills.

Our workshop is designed to teach acting, writing, directing, camera operation, and video editing. The program is a weeklong workshop with a community screening on the final day at a local venue. The purpose of the program is to encourage Native youth to create video content about their tribal communities and identity. Concurrently, the workshop encourages them to pursue a career in TV, film, and new multimedia platforms. 

The films produced in our summer program workshops will be showcased as part of the 12th Annual LA SKINS FEST at the Chinese Theater in Hollywood. The youth are invited to the film festival as special guests and are brought on tours of movie studios and television networks.  This year, Native youth will be invited to participate in the 2018 NATIVE YOUTH MULTIMEDIA WEEKEND in November that will offer studio tours, workshops, screenings, and attendance to the 2018 Native American Media Awards in Hollywood, CA.
