Futures We Dream

The program, Futures We Dream, is seeking 10 creative students ages 18 and up currently living in Alameda County looking to explore storytelling and media arts as a career.

The program includes meeting with local and national filmmakers featured in the FUTURES exhibit. Participants will also be eligible for the Bay Area Pre-Apprenticeship Program for Multimedia Producers.

Fellowship members will receive an hourly stipend for their active participation during classes, as well as work time outside of class.
