InterActivist Network new media workshops 1.6.03

  • Deadline:
    Dec. 10, 2002, 1 a.m.

ABC No Rio's InterActivist Network is beginning
another course of
training in new media technology.

The InterActivist Network provides training in new
technologies, and through this training develops
content for the
InterActivist website ( http://www.interactivist.net

The proliferation of web-based media has resulted in a
need to
provide artists and community and media activists with
new skills and
knowledge. The InterActivist Network is a training
program that seeks
to provide education in new digital technologies
through the
development of a web-site addressing local issues that
have national
or international implications.

Use of the internet by artists and activists has
exploded, yet for
many the technology remains mystifying. This program's
regimen includes overview presentations, workshops,
and hands-on
experience through developing and producing content
for the
InterActivist site. The year 2002 program runs from
mid-April through
November. The following subjects are covered: HTML and
Design; Shooting Video; Digital Video Editing; Digital
Video Formats
and Video Compression; Digital Audio; Server Set-Up
and Maintenance;
and Relational Databases and Media Management.

Participants are expected to have grounding and
expertise in at least
one of the following areas: video production and/or
web-site design or associated graphic design
applications; network
and client/server technologies; or ENG or print
journalism. A high
degree of skills-sharing occurs among the participants
in this
project, complementing the training provided by
experts in the
relevant technologies.

We meet weekly for two to three hour sessions every
Sunday at 2:30pm;
additional work sessions occur at times throughout the
week. The next
course of training will begin on SUNDAY JANUARY 6,
