BENEFITING: Oberlin College
HOURS PLEDGED: 30
Please help us reach our goal to create a media education center for children and families in the community that includes: a summer filmmaking camp, media workshops in Oberlin secondary schools, visits by film and media artists, and the viewing of films of all periods and genres.
WHY SUPPORT US?
“Children are immersed in an environment structured by computers, video games, and cell phones. Yet too often, these kids have little or no access to media tools to tell their own stories,” says Brown-Orso. The Apollo Outreach Initiative promotes media literacy—the ability to express oneself using text, image, and sound.
Contributions to this initiative will support outreach programs, as well as renovation of the second floor of the Apollo Theatre to provide classrooms, editing suites, and smaller screening spaces. Make a donation today to help us make the historic Apollo Theatre the focal point for people of all ages and backgrounds to come together and share their stories.
We are asking everyone to give $100, $50, or $25 and, after you donate, click the Help Us Fundraise button to reach out to friends and family to help us with this important cause.
