HAL Summer Session 4: Storytelling and Media Making

Published on August 17, 2020

HAL Summer Session 4:
Storytelling and Media Making

Join us for our fourth HAL Summer Storytelling Session! 

These sessions are an opportunity to hear from our partners in this moment of pandemic & anti-racist, Black Lives Matter uprisings. What we share and learn in this session will help us collectively reimagine our plans for the fall and shape the building blocks for the future of HAL.

The fourth session will focus on storytelling and media making. This session will allow us to hear from frontline community partners about their work with Environmental Justice and how COVID has impacted the community and their efforts. This will also be an opportunity to collectively share experiences and resources, and reimagine how we might use these mediums to effect change. 

We're thrilled that this session will feature community partner Edith Tovar of the Little Village Environmental Justice Organization (LVEJO) in Chicago, telling stories from their ongoing local efforts. We will also have the opportunity to learn more about the fantastic storytelling project from our partners at the University of Puerto Rico at Mayagüez: “Mi María: Puerto Rico After the Hurricane”
