It was an eventful occasion that included student-led tours of our new media lab facilities, remarks by EVC students, Manhattan Borough President Gale A. Brewer, City-As-School Principal Alan Cheng, Harlem Renaissance HS Assistant Principal and EVC alumni Ahmed Edwards, and EVC Executive Director Steve Goodman followed by a ribbon cutting ceremony. Thanks to all our guests for joining us to celebrate our new media lab and the life-changing works of our students and alumni.
Our new space would not have been possible without the generous capital support from Manhattan Borough President Gale A. Brewer, New York City Comptroller Scott M. Stringer, New York City Council Member Corey Johnson, and The Hyde and Watson Foundation.
With state-of-the-art cameras and digital editing workshop facilities, we are excited to bring you more of EVC’s youth-produced documentary films in the new year! This can only happen with your continued support. For this holiday season, please include a generous donation to EVC’s Annual Appeal in your year-end giving and help us reach our fundraising goal of $6,000 by the end of December. Each dollar you give contributes to the education of a future EVC youth producer. Don’t wait — click here to make your tax-deductible donation today. We hope to see you at our students’ premiere screening at HBO on January 7th!
