We’re excited to announce that enrollment is now open for the Spring 2017 version of the Civic Media: Codesign Studio (CMS.862). This year, the Codesign Studio is partnering with Boston-area youth media organizations to develop media projects that respond to the current political, cultural, economic, and environmental crisis with youth-led visions of a more just and creative future.
Amazing Partners. We’re still working to confirm them, so can’t share names yet, but we are going to have some seriously amazing organizations as partners for the codesign studio and associated events. If you have a strong existing relationship with a community based yoorganization, you may also propose them as your project partner.
General description. The Civic Media: Codesign Studio provides a service-learning opportunity for students and is organized into multidisciplinary, diverse teams that work together with a community partner to create civic media projects based on real-world needs. The studio is also a space for shared inquiry into the theory, history, best practices, and critiques of various approaches to community inclusion in iterative stages of project ideation, design, implementation, testing, and evaluation.
