Youth identity in the context of urban violence
Posted by on October 19, 2009
THE UNIVERSITY COMMUNITY COLLABORATIVE OF PHILADELPHIA PRESENTS
“Survival and Success”
youth identity in the context of urban violence
How do young people in Philadelphia perceive and process the daily violence they encounter in their
communities and institutions? How can we use media to understand their interpretations and
appropriations of the culture of urban violence, and how can we in turn use this knowledge to negotiate
our own interactions with and perceptions about youth and violence in Philadelphia?
Through screening and discussion of selected videos produced by young people in the UCCP’s youth
media programs, we hope to arrive at a better collective understanding of urban violence and how it
affects young people, the larger community of Philadelphia and social institutions in America.
