Welcome to the YPRPT 2021 Film Festival

In partnership with the TREE Lab in Northwestern’s School of Education and Social Policy, the Block Museum presented a special online screening, on June 24, 2021, of three documentaries produced by students of the Young People’s Race, Power, and Technology (YPRPT) project. YPRPT is an afterschool program, developed in partnership with community partners that brings together NU undergraduate students with youth and community members to jointly investigate the ethical and social dimensions of emerging technologies.

After six months of a fully online program guided by an innovative participatory curriculum, YPRPT’s second run has culminated with nine short documentaries that investigate ethical and social possibilities and perils wrought by new technologies.
