Silver Spring's first youth media festival at City Place, May 10, 2008

Gandhi Brigade youth are organizing Silver Spring's first youth media festival.

Kennedy senior, Maria Guererro, is the festival coordinator. She is working with youth coordinator, Hawa Touré, youth developer, Heather Bradley, and a steering committee composed off eight teens to offer young people a venue for their new media creativity.

The festival has accepted submission in three categories: video, photography, and graphic arts. Best of show awards will be offered for each category.

The festival will be held May 10th in City Place Mall.

In addition to showing teen media the organizers want to use the festival as a springboard for a discussion of critical issues that face young people. The festival is open to youth ages 11 - 18.
