Dreamcatcher

Beyondmedia is introducing a powerful collaboration with the Dreamcatcher Foundation, an organization founded by two formerly incarcerated women who have spent much of their lives involved in the sex trade, Stephanie Daniels-Wilson and Brenda Myers-Powell. Dreamcatcher works with girls, aged 12-18, who live in Chicago's Englewood community who are at high risk for incarceration and sexual exploitation.

Using the creative process to generate a safe space for reflection, participants are creating a video in their own voices and of their own determination. The girls will take on the impressive task of using this video to organize other girls and young women to generate community dialogue and actively engage others around issues that young women in this neighborhood face every day

A Girls! Action! Media! Project

Girls! Action! Media! workshops create a safe space for young women to talk about issues of concern and develop as community activists while learning important media, arts and technology skills.

We partner with programs for under-served girls and young women, equipping them to use technology and media creatively to examine and ultimately transform their lives and their communities.
