Event description

Description

Are you a chatty teenager who is curious about the world and what is going on in it? Do you like to write or make videos for fun? Or perhaps you love editing or using a camera?

Maybe journalism is for you!

Indigenous J-School is the brainchild of Steve Sxwithul'twx who offers workshops to engage teens in a participatory way by getting them to try out a broadcast camera and use professional recording devices.

Steve is a former CTV reporter and producer who now produces award-winning TV programs and films.

Students will also hear from several Indigenous CBC employees about their reasons for choosing this career.

Post-secondary schools will be on hand to talk about the programs they offer.

Lunch is included. Students will take public transit to the corner of 41st Avenue and Crown Drive and a shuttle will take them to the Musqueam Cultural Centre.

We are filming the event. If any students cannot be filmed, we will accommodate them.

This workshop is part of CBC Vancouver's commitment to fulfilling the recommendations outlined in the Truth and Reconciliation Commission about media.

If you have any questions feel free to call lead facilitator Steve Sxwithul'twx at 1-250-588-9253 or Theresa Lalonde at the CBC 778-839-5520.
