The “Be The Media!” Workshop series provides local artists, producers, and citizen journalists with opportunities to acquire and improve the skills necessary for successful and high-impact independent media-making.

The workshops series, now in its 9th season, offers chances to explore the use of technology in making art and media, and build the creative capacity of our region. Geared to suit people who know a lot or a little about digital tools, the workshops are suitable for both curious novices, and seasoned users ready to hone their skills. The instructors are world-renowned media artists with expertise in many fields, and come from the Capital District and beyond.

The “Be The Media!” Workshop Series is presented in partnership with the Hudson Mohawk Independent Media Center, with the financial support of Holding Our Own and the New York State Council on the Arts. Each 4-hour workshop will be held in The Sanctuary for Independent Media at 3361 6th Avenue in Troy, NY.

We recognize that while $40 is a pretty good deal for a media workshop, not everyone can afford it.  We HIGHLY value diverse groups of workshop participants and encourage anyone who is interested in attending, but unable to pay the fee, to apply for a scholarship.
