HERE'S A BIT ABOUT THE CAMP:

The Portland Grassroots Media Camp is a weekend of hands-on
skill-shares, media workshops, presentations, discussions and
gatherings aimed to empower people with tools and skills to express
themselves. The camp is open to anyone, emphasizing the inclusion of
those who are traditionally excluded from media representation,
creation and production.

The next camp will be held Sept 12-14th at PCC Cascade. Last year's
camp had over 50 workshops from silk-screening and woodcuts to how to
upload to you-tube, writing a press release, zine: peer editing, video
production and much, much more!

The media's job is to interest the public in the public interest. -John Dewey
