ALL OVER HI FI: PDUB WORKSHOPS PROVIDE LOCAL YOUTH WITH HANDS-ON, PARTICIPATORY LEARNING OUTSIDE THE CONVENTIONAL CLASSROOM SETTING
Beyond providing youth with digital media skills, PDUB Productions aims to build a greater sense of community through civic participation. Media production about Historic Filipinotown becomes the vehicle for connecting youth to their neighborhood –its history, local stakeholders, community resources; its distribution through the Mobile Hi Fi Tours and HyperCities the means of increasing public awareness and visitors to the area. On a deeper level, PDUB seeks to evolve among participating youth and the community-at-large a heightened sense of belonging, ownership and continued investment in Historic Filipinotown.
PDUB Productions is unique in its depth, scope and the potential of its reach and community impact. Its comprehensive hands-on curriculum emphasizes the connection between media production and community benefit, combining neighborhood and cultural history, community journalism, interactive tour design, audio and video production.
PDUB Youth participate in a range of activities that strengthen confidence, creativity, leadership skills and civic awareness. They interview guest speakers about neighborhood history, Filipinos in Los Angeles and community activism.
