Explainer Video for Landscape of Hope, an Educational Digital Arts Initiative
Landscape of Hope is a youth-led digital art initiative designed to empower marginalized groups with critical digital literacy skills and social media tools to create cutting-edge multimedia performances and installations that describe their experiences with hate, discrimination and bullying. The aim of the project is to create media-based narratives that accurately reflect youths’ lived experiences, with the ultimate objective of reducing instances of discrimination.
A newly produced 9-minute video explains the concept and experience of Landscape of Hope. It features the co-founders of the project, CSLP Director Vivek Venkatesh and Owen Chapman, associate professor in Communication Studies, as well as Sandra Chang-Kredl, associate professor in Education, Amélie Brault, lecturer in art therapies along with some of the participants in the project.
