A total of 30 full scholarships will be given to Genesee and Shiawassee County teens, ages 15-18. Students and community members will learn techniques for encouraging dialogue on divisive issues and explore credible approaches and doable methods to produce positive social impacts.
In addition, students are given the opportunity to learn transferable skill sets as they work on the production, including conducting interviews, facilitating and participating in community dialogue sessions, creating scripts, writing lyrics, producing story boards, cinematography, building sets and props and creating visual art and theatre and dance pieces for the project.
The workshop and all performances are free.
