The Independent Media Center is hosting its third annual IndyMedia & Arts Lab! The Lab will take place August 1 – August 5th and August 8 – August 12, 2011 from 9-3 pm.
Teens ages 10-16 are invited to engage in hands on workshops on radio production, community gardening, painting/art, making musical instruments, computers, and ‘zine making. This year’s Lab provides affordable extended summer activities that will empower youths to learn, explore, express themselves, and build confidence in a safe, confidence building environment. The cost is $150, $75, or $0. Cost is determined by eligibility for lunch fee waivers in school.
Lunch will be served to participants. Enrollment is open now but space is limited.
