Apply for a Workshop

The Summer Lab

The Summer Lab is a free, 4-week writing and filmmaking intensive workshop for teens ages 14-20.

Summer Lab students work with a writing mentor to create original spoken-word poetry and then turn their poems into original short films.

During the course of four intense, exciting weeks, you will have the opportunity to explore the worlds of poetry/spoken word, video production and editing. Combining these elements, the final product will be unique to your own voice and vision – this is your chance to experiment and think outside the box!

Eligibility

The Summer Lab is open to teens aged 14-20. No filmmaking experience is required.

Classes Meet

Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday from 11am-4pm
