Participatory Culture at the Echo Park Film Center
Rosales, Jennifer Ann
Journal of Media Literacy Education, v5 n1 p349-356 2013
The Echo Park Film Center, a Los Angeles nonprofit media education organization, teaches underprivileged youth how to comprehend and make media in order to empower them to speak and be heard. Due to the organization's nonmainstream media courses and its connection to its community, the Center is able to create a participatory and socially inclusive environment that teaches young people a particular form of media making and comprehension. In this article, I explore the participatory culture created at the Echo Park Film Center through an observational study of its "Origins" course and a contextual analysis of the organization's methods and philosophy.
