Don’t just consume media, make it.
Learn how to tell your own story through video, audio, or animation using high-quality equipment and software in a supportive, collaborative environment. If you are between the ages 14-17, you are eligible to join Next Gen, BAVC Media’s FREE after school youth program. Please note that all youth programming is currently held in-person in San Francisco!
Each Next Gen class is led by a teaching artist and provides foundational skills in a specific media-making domain. Classes meet twice a week, with a focus on hands-on practice and application of new techniques. Classes also include career development workshops and opportunities. At the end of each program semester, all classes convene for a collective screening/premiere and community celebration.
Students who complete all requirements of the program will receive a $250 incentive! Requirements include a minimum attendance rate and completion of all major capstone projects.
