PhillyCAM Youth Media Workshop: Community of Images


On Friday, May 31, 2024, the University of the Arts, a primary presenting partner for “Community of Images,” abruptly announced its imminent closure, slated for Friday, June 7, 2024. As a result, the status of the exhibition and related programs became uncertain.

Currently, all exhibition-related programs are now scheduled to take place at the Philadelphia Art Alliance, including during the exhibition’s opening weekend, Friday–Sunday, June 14–16, 2024.

For the latest information, please refer to the exhibition website.

Youth participants will receive a guided tour of the “Community of Images” exhibition, learning about early examples of the use of video technology and independent filmmaking for documentation of protests, communication, and alternative news reporting, followed by a hands-on workshop with PhillyCAM to create a short media piece as a creative response.
