New application deadline Dec. 14 via @detroitfuture
Apply for Detroit Future Media 2012 Workshops
The highly in-demand DFM workshop series, now in its second year, are 20-week trainings for Detroiters interested in building Detroit's media economy through the creation of grassroots media, and community cultural production. The workshops offer intensive trainings in video, graphics, and web design with a focus on education, entrepreneurship and media-based community organizing.
Those that apply can be ages 18-80, have a basic understanding of computers and passionate about positively transforming Detroit.
The Detroit Future Media Workshops are made possible through a grant awarded to the Detroit Digital Justice Coalition (DDJC) by the Broadband Technology Opportunity Program of the American Recovery And Reinvestment (Stimulus) Act.
The Detroit Digital Justice Coalition is comprised of people and organizations in Detroit who believe that communication is a fundamental human right. We are securing that right through activities that are grounded in the digital justice principles of: access, participation, common ownership, and healthy communities.
