Wide Angle Youth Media Presents: Black Butterfly

Wide Angle’s annual fall event, Black Butterfly will take place on Thursday, November 8th, from 6-8:30pm. We’ll premiere videos, photography, and design projects created by hundreds of Baltimore's young people in the 2017-2018 academic year around the youth-chosen theme of "Why Black Lives Matter". The event will offer a VIP reception at the prestigious Maryland Institute College of Art, and then a public screening and dialogue with youth producers and community members. This unique event will feature low-ticket prices and free admission to MICA students/faculty, encouraging a diverse group of community members and stakeholders to join together in meaningful dialogue around racial equity in Baltimore.

Our VIP reception begins at 6pm, and our series of youth-produced films, youth speakers, and keynotes will begin at 7pm. The event will also include networking with special guests, and community organizations from across Baltimore. After the screening, dessert and coffee will be served. This event will launch our students' films, as well as a Wide Angle-produced curriculum to accompany them for use in middle, high school and college classrooms. Proceeds from the event will support our free media education and youth development programs. This an important and timely topic, and we invite you to spread the word to your colleagues.
