DETROIT WOMEN OF COLOR, INCORPORATED
Lifting the Voices of Black and Brown Girls and Women
FOR GIRLS ONLY
Change is Reel Film Labs will open doors in the film industry for Black and Brown girls in Metro Detroit by putting cameras in their hands to provide a lens for them to see the beauty in themselves and their community. Our film/media/leadership program is for girls of color between 13 and 18 years old who live in Metro Detroit. We provide a joyful and healing space for our participants to stay connected, learn about resources, and gain tools to thrive during this powerful moment in history. Spaces are limited.
WE ARE THE ONES WE HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR
Change is Reel utilizes multimedia as a tool for Black and Brown girls to tell their own stories and shift the narratives that impact their lives. This year we are focusing on The CROWN Act and End the Pushout Act to motivate our girls to have agency over their lives by actively working towards solutions. We aim to educate our community and garner support.
Our Change is Reel program will host live stream sessions and exclusive access to independent films by or about Black and Brown girls and women, watch parties, masterclasses on filmmaking, and use digital storytelling to envision a better future.
