PICTURE THE POSSIBILITIES: 2011-2012

OVERVIEW


What is Picture the Possibilities? Siren Song Creations crafted the above video as an overview of the entire global youth voice empowerment program. It describes how we traveled around the world to work with youth to make media that represented the issues they were concerned with and their visions of a better tomorrow.

ABOUT OUR WORK WITH PICTURE THE POSSIBILITIES

Siren Song Creations was the media team for the seminal first season of this inspiring youth program. We traveled and worked with footage from all over the world to make these youth visions come to life. Picture the Possibilities then collaborates with champions and business leaders to enact the changes pitched in these films. For more information, visit www.cinequestptp.org.
