The Sonoma County Museum is pleased to announce a grant award from the Smithsonian Affiliate program to develop and complete storytelling documentaries focusing on Asian Pacific American (APA) families. SCM is inviting APA youth 15-18 years old to attend the orientation to learn more about this special opportunity. Reservations are required, please reserve your spot in the section on the right. 
The project creates an opportunity for APA youth to learn about the art of film making and the history of their relatives.  Students will be mentored by Jim Helmer and advanced video students at Santa Rosa High School's ArtQuest. Additional skills garnered are interview techniques and how to edit their documentary film into a 3-5 minute vignette (to possibly air on the Smithsonian Affiliate website).
