Minnesota Refugee Voices is a human rights-themed documentary video workshop series for Minnesota-based refugees and recent immigrants. Participants will learn to use video storytelling to raise awareness around human rights issues important to them. Based on their interests, participants will work in small teams to write and direct a short documentary video centered around their own personal stories and ideas. The workshop series will cover storyboarding, interviewing, filming and editing. The final productions will be shown at a special screening and reception.
The workshop series is FREE and is limited to 10 participants. The series consists of multiple evening 3-hour workshop sessions every two weeks for six month beginning in January. Each participant will recieve a stipend of $300 to defray transportation costs to and from the workshop.
