INVITED YDME: Out the Window: Youth, Technology and Community Engagement


This panel is made up of team members from an innovative and interdisciplinary project titled, “Out the Window.” The project encourages young people to build mobile video stories that document the distinct aspects of local communities in the greater Los Angeles area. The video narratives will run on LA-area buses. “Out the Window” involves many of the themes our strand on youth will likely focus on. Themes include the importance of youth social media production and design, civic engagement, and the building and maintenance of local knowledge communities: Freewaves, Echo Park Film Center, Public Matters Group and UCLA REMAP.
