Project Next Generation
Six Mile Community Voices Project
a Project Next Generation Grant – February 2018 through April 2018
The “Six Mile Community Voices Project” workshops begin February 10th.
We are looking for 30-40 local youth and 10-12 local veterans to participate in this project.
If you are interested, contact Kate at [email protected] or call 618-452-6238 ext. 755.
With this Project Next Generation Grant, we are developing a series of filmmaking activities and workshops for youth ages 10-14. The end projects will be two short films; an interview with a local veteran and a documentary piece on growing up in our community. Finished interviews and films will be shown as a community event and will be archived at Six Mile Regional Library District. Veteran interviews will be submitted to the Illinois Digital Archives and the Library of Congress Veterans History Project.
Funding for this grant was awarded by the Illinois State Library, a Department of the Office of Secretary of State, using funds provided by the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services, under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA).
