COLLECTIVE DREAMS + DESIRES
Intergenerational Insights on
Civic Participation and Media Literacy

This summer NAMLE, The Alliance for Media Arts + Culture, and 14 Black Poppies convened over 60 emerging artists / filmmakers, students, educators, librarians, and organizers at Roosevelt University in Chicago, Illinois, for an intergenerational conversation on civic participation and media literacy.

This case study, Collective Dreams + Desires, generated from the Pre-Conference Workshop on Civic Participation and Media Literacy at the 2017 NAMLE Conference, is a meditation on the affordances of intentional creation of spaces and intergenerational dialogue around civic participation and media literacy. It is an academic, poetic, and visual report of that conversation and reveals three crucial insights:

  • We need more spaces / places that cultivate imagination and dreaming.
  • We need intergenerational approaches that facilitate equity between / among generations.
  • We need to honor both the whole person and the whole organization in order to deepen our collective impact.

The report is authored by Celi Tamayo-Lee, Emily Bailin Wells, and Jason Wyman along with all of the people who participated in the conversation.
