In August 2013, youth were invited to spend a week at VIVO immersed in the hands-on creation of documentaries, news, commercials, music videos, public service announcements, viral videos and/or other mediums for creating persuasive messaging.

This one-week intensive is ideal for youth interested in media arts, video and filmmaking, and activism. Students found and shared examples of how digital media is used to influence what we buy, what we do, what we think and who we are through the internet, social media, TV and advertising. With increased media literacy and an understanding of techniques used to powerfully tell a story, students created scripts, filmed, edited, and disseminated their own stories about the issues they care about.

About the 

Flick Harrison is a writer, media artist, filmmaker, hacker and drone pilot in Vancouver. “I’ve explored boundaries of all kinds in media, politics, education and the arts for over twenty years.  As an artist, I explode the aesthetics of political conflict; as an educator, I try to make media flow organically from the social.  My ambition is to lead, support and challenge non-profits, schools, community groups and other progressive actors to improve their understanding and use of media, all while having fun."
