Berkeley-based Center for Independent Living (CIL) will begin offering a weekly class, Inclusive Media Class, starting on Jan. 31st that would teach students how to work with multiple forms of media.
Students will explore various digital media projects/formats such as music video production, digital arts advocacy, performance, and documentary filmmaking. The class aims to promote student independence and provides them with alternate ways for diverse learners to communicate and express themselves.
Students build pre-vocational skills that can be used in professional opportunities in the future while staying up to speed with technology and the digital world around them. Class participants are involved in all steps of the video making process, from planning and creating stories, to filming and performing, and the final steps of editing and project promotion. Spring semester will likely create a collaborative music video.
Classes run from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and are held at the Ed Roberts Campus, 3075 Adeline Street, suite 100, Berkeley. Email YouthTransitions@thecil.org to register.
