VFC Exhibits :: Discovering Community: Media by Young People Exploring Their Own Lives and the World Around Them

Our annual showcase of student work, Discovering Community: Media by Young People Exploring Their Own Lives and the World Around Them opened Friday, May 16, at the Vermont Folklife Center's Vision & Voice Documentary Workspace and will run through Saturday, July 12.

Showcasing over 100 documentary media works produced in the last nine months by K-12 students and at-risk youth populations, the exhibit celebrates their accomplishments with an opportunity to view their diverse and often provocative projects.

Among the unique individual projects this year are films exploring the experience of being "at risk" produced by Randolph High School students, a documentary project by Harwood High School students who traveled to Rwanda to record "Stories of Hope," "Personal Documentaries" created by Students at Hartford High School and Peoples Academy, and a film exchange linking Vermont students with young people in a small fishing village in Nicaragua.

For more information on the exhibit and our education programs, please contact Gregory Sharrow at (802) 388-4964.
