Youth Civics weekend film making workshop

Youth civic filmmaking workshop

Help us create a video to inform how young people can participate in local government and contribute their important voices to decisions that affect them.

Attend a two-day design-thinking and filmmaking workshop

Participants will be guided through a series of fun visual exercises and storytelling activities designed to bring their personal stories and current realities to life. 

A creative problem-solving approach will be used on key issues facing immigrant and refugee youth in order to develop fresh ideas and future pathways to civic engagement. Participants will also learn techniques in creative brainstorming, interviewing, journey-mapping, and storyboarding.

  • Newcomer (for example: immigrant or refugee)
  • Live, work, or go to school in Vancouver
