Y.M.I.C. is a program providing youth from NYC with high-quality training in media-making and community involvement. Program participants learn media production, leadership, community outreach and media literacy skills.
We are now accepting applications for YMIC 2011.
The Winter 2010 Program Guides are now available for download, or you can pick up a hard copy at MNN on West 59th Street. We encourage you to grab a handful, mail them out to your friends, and distribute them to your communities. Highlight your shows and leave them at your local coffee shops, restaurants, libraries, and schools. If you would like one mailed to your home please email firstname.lastname@example.org. It's the cheapest way to promote your shows!
Hailing from Arlington, Virginia, the oddly titled "Workshops Consortium Live" is a unique collection of short improvised theater bits about race, class and economic woes, starring screaming older women and young, awkward teens.
Simultaneously hilarious and heartwarming, these pieces are set against colorful yet jarring blue screen visuals, causing a dizzying and strangely captivating effect.
This is truly something you will only see on public access.
Behold the spectacle: Tuesday nights at 9:30 PM on MNN2!
