Artist Statement: 

Wide Angle Youth Media is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that provides Baltimore youth with media education to tell their own stories and become engaged with their communities. Through quality after-school programming, in-school opportunities, summer workshops, community events, and an annual Youth Media Festival, Wide Angle supports young people making a difference through media.

Young people are often silenced by their age, but we believe their stories are valuable and need to be heard.  Our students write, direct, and star in their own films, but that is only half of this integral cycle of creation and viewership.  Validate their hard work by watching their videos, listening to what they have to say, and spreading their message.  Feel free to link these videos on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, or any other social media website.  Share them with friends and, most of all, enjoy them!
