Uptown Summer

Date(s) - Tuesday 07/11/2017 - 08/11/2017
4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

The 7th annual Uptown Summer begins full-swing July 11th. The Rensselaer County Summer Youth Employment Program sponsored the Sanctuary for Independent Media to hire 10 new local youth this year. Over the span of 5 weeks, our neighborhood youth become community leaders, environmental stewards, media producers, storytelling artists, scientists, researchers, and local volunteers. Via all these diverse roles, the youth and their mentors will create a multimedia documentary called “Echoes from Lock One.”
