If you don't already have one, consider this your official invitation to Friday's showcase for the Digital Media Academy.

It's been a wild week of work, play, and selfies galore with some fantastically energetic and excited Louisville middle school girls who can't wait to show off their group videos on Friday. We've been talking about projected identities for girls as digital media producers, not just consumers. They've been talking about Everything Else and making their projects happen. We, and they, would appreciate your support if you're in town on Friday.

Chao Auditorium--1:00 PM June 27, 2014 --light refreshments--their movies, photos & a chance to see some community engagement in progress--we hope to see you there!
