This workshop utilizes the music industry to establish a line of communication with today’s youth. By emphasizing the importance of Media Literacy and Media Advocacy this workshop provides tools to help participants critically analyze various genres of music to detect subtle (or not-so-subtle) influences and suggestions that glorify and promote reckless, negative lifestyles, choices and decisions among today’s youth.
The effects of the music culture on today’s society are explored in depth. This workshop is ideal for creative prevention and intervention strategies to facilitate groups, trainings and/or simple, open dialogue by actively involving youth in the process of deciphering, dissecting and listening to the “Message in the Music”.
