Scribe Video Center was founded in 1982 as a place where emerging and experienced media artists could gain access to the tools and knowledge of video making and work together in a supportive environment. Scribe provides training in all aspects of film, video and audio production. We also offer classes in computer-based interactive media to individuals and community organizations as well. We give emerging and mid-level video makers the skills and opportunity to use video and film as tools for self-expression and for representing and supporting their communities.
Scribe programs are designed to be accessible to all. Please contact us if you have special (audio or visual) needs so that we can accommodate.
Inspired by To Joy My Freedom, author Tera Hunter’s depiction of the 1881 organization of African-American laundresses in Atlanta, The Washing Society brings us into New York City laundromats and the experiences of the people who work there. The Washing Society investigates the intersection of history, underpaid work, immigration, and the sheer math of doing laundry.
