Teen artists from Art 180‘s summer programs will showcase their video and radio projects during Play/Pause at 6:00 PM on Tuesday, August 5, at Virginia Repertory Theater. This event is free and open to the public.
From Art 180:
In partnership with Richmond Behavioral Health Authority (RBHA) and WRIR 97.3fm youth in the summer radio program have explored the power of the spoken story. After learning the art of radio broadcasting and audio recording they have compiled a collection of personal stories designed to stir emotion, provoke thought and share perspectives from their experiences. The final performance will be a public gathering to listen to the live airing of their radio show broadcast on WRIR 97.3fm. The stories will continue to be played on WRIR through the end of 2014.
Teens in our video production program are creating short documentary films focusing on identity and stereotypes within their communities. In addition to creating the short films about their lives, the young artists also created a film documenting their intercultural dialogue with participants in VCU’s Iraqi Young Leader Exchange Program.
