In conjunction with the release of MAKERS: Women Who Make America, the 9 Media Lab provided a platform for youth to tell the stories of local women who have inspired them. In partnership with youth organizations throughout the Seattle area, forty youth were given the opportunity to participate in the Makers Workshop at the 9 Media Lab. The participants learned storytelling skills as well as how to shoot, produce and edit video in to tell a digital story.
Our partner organizations were The Center School, Girl Scouts of Western Washington, the RecTech program at the Delridge Community Center, Rain City Rock Camp for Girls, and the Seattle International Film Festival.
MAKERS is a landmark digital and broadcast initiative from AOL and PBS showcasing compelling stories from women of today and tomorrow. Watch Now
