Join us in helping to raise funds for the Community Art Center’s Teen Media Program and its annual film festival. This year marks the 24th year of Cambridge’s own Do It Your Damn Self!! National Youth Film Festival. It’s the longest-running youth film festival in the country!

Since its inception, DIYDS!! has provided a platform for teens in the Port neighborhood of Cambridge to represent themselves authentically. It began when 6 Art Center teens recognized that they were being underrepresented and misrepresented in the media; they boldly declared that, if you want to make change happen, sometimes you have to “Do It Your Damn Self!!” 

 

For decades, the Community Art Center’s Teen Media Program and DIYDS!! Film Festival have been a clarion call to social justice; voiced by young people telling their own stories of identity, race, activism, and equity. Funding from our DIYDS!! Trivia Night will help support this program and festival and amplify the powerful voices of our youth.
