The Youth Encuentro was a success. From 9am to 5pm, youth from Filmore to Santa Maria (and everywhere in between) participated in workshops about the use of media and arts in community empowerment. The whole day was documented by a team of youth participants in the hands-on video production workshop. The complete and edited video will be posted soon. So, keep a look out!

Three panels of open wall were installed at the Youth Encuentro for participants to express themselves freely, safely and wildly.

A concert featuring 11 performers from Los Angeles and Oxnard rocked out from 5pm-10pm.

Youth participants painted a mural to raise awareness about the Halaco toxic waste dump in South Oxnard.
