Venue: St. Stephen’s-in-the-fields (102 Bellevue Avenue) Saturday, September 29th 11am-12:30pm Cost: Pay What You Can, $5.00 gets you the latest issue!
In this workshop, Shameless Magazines gives a crash course in media literacy, revealing the myths and misconceptions about both independent and corporate owned news sources. With a special focus on feminist and teen issues, this session will help you learn how to review, critique and report on the way our world is reflected back at us. Through a series of activities, you’ll learn how to decipher the messages and ultimately how make them yourself. Looking at samples of everything from DIY zines to newspapers to full glossy periodicals, participants will examine what they do and don’t like about the messages that are meant for them to consume, and learn how to create their own report on the world as they see it.
