TILT (TEACHING INTERMEDIA LITERACY TOOLS)
Ninth Street youth media program, TILT, collaborates with schools, community-based programs, and individual youth to teach young people the fundamentals of moviemaking and media literacy through hands-on training in video production. Through a combination of technical training and hands-on experience students are encouraged think critically about media and to create their own alternative messages.
