Youth Advisory Board 2011
Voices of Young America:
STEREOTYPES, INSIDE OUT & UPSIDE DOWN
MOCA’s Youth Advisory Board brought together a group of committed New York City teens who wanted to engage with Chinese/Asian American history, explore issues that matter to youth in America and have a voice in their community. Weekly workshops provided an out-of-classroom learning experience where students were probed to think creatively and critically, build leadership skills and document their experiences through multimedia technology. Working with MOCA’s education staff as well as teaching artists and guest lecturers, students created a culminating digital project on the selected theme.
Last summer, the program focused on Media Representations of Asians and Asian Americans.
