BloomBars, the community arts space on 11th Street, is kicking off a new program tonight with the Columbia Heights Media Project. You can learn about the project tonight at BloomBars from 6 - 8 pm.
Writes the organizer, Julie Espinosa:
The Columbia Heights Media Project is the vision for a participatory documentary and interactive media project with the potential to help us move past helplessness to a place of love—a place of awareness, care and understanding. Audio/visual media and the camera can be powerful tools. I invite you to join me in using those tools to document the stories of our neighborhood and transform the ways that we interact with one another.

The website currently has a nice selection of neighborhood videos and vignettes that you may have seen elsewhere but now it's all in one place. It's a cool concept.
