Ojectivos / Objectives
The purpose of the video letter is to empower youth with the skills of media literacy, to encourage youth not only to think critically about their lives and their communities but to also have a means of expression to comment on their social situation.
Another purpose is to raise awareness of human rights and children’s rights through relating the themes youth are interested in filming to concepts set out in the U.N. Declaration of Human Rights and the Conventions on the Rights of the Child.
The video letter also serves to create alternative media representations and narratives that often challenge mainstream media representations of socially excluded communities.
