READING: YOUTH MEDIA PROJECT

On Thursday, January 31st, 2013, we hosted a group of Marfa High School students, their friends and family, as well as a large number of members of the community, as the students presented original audio documentaries as a part of the Youth Media Project organized by Alice Quinlan and Marfa Public Radio.  Subjects for the documentaries included "Identity", "Stereotyping", "Cultural Difference" and "80s Movies" and the pieces ranged between 5 and 10 minutes.  Here the participants are pictured with their mentors on the night of the event:

Thanks to everyone who attended.  It was a great event.  You can learn more about the KRTS Youth Media Project, which is a part of National Public Radio's American Graduate: Let's Make It Happen initiative, by visiting the Marfa Public Radio website.
