Messages in Motion

Messages in Motion (MIM) works with neighborhood programs and community-based organizations to produce, distribute and exhibit short form documentary videos as a way to support and enhance existing community organizing work. The project seeks to facilitate an exchange within and between neighborhood residents in Philadelphia in order to share strategies and responses to social concerns. MIM presents a model of communication that promotes the benefits of technology while affirming the importance of public space and personal interactions. Through video production workshops, multiple distribution platforms and innovative teaching models, MIM activates relationships by networking people and promoting self-expression as a step toward social change.
