SKINS YOUTH MULTIMEDIA WORKSHOPS
In 2009, we initiated the Skins Fest Film Workshop that instructs Native youth in writing, directing, camera operation, editing, and music composition. We partnered with United American Indian Involvement, Inc., Los Angeles Unified School District, and the Institute for Multimedia Literacy at the University of Southern California's School of Cinematic Arts to hold a two week program that culminated in a community screening at the Pechanga Indian Reservation.
