Young People’s Ofrenda Project Blog 2009
Greetings and welcome to the 2009 Young People’s Ofrendas Project Blog. We will keep track of the progress of the student’s ofrendas as they create them. Through video cameras, the students will record what they are working on and their thought process. We are working with El Colegio High School in Minneapolis Minnesota. This is our second year working with these students; they are really great and creative young people. Last year’s ofrenda project can be found here.
There will be two perspectives of this project on the blog; the student’s and mine. The student’s view will come through in the videos that they create, and mine will be shown in the text.
The video cameras have been donated to this project by Best Buy. When the project is completed, the students will keep the video cameras for themselves. We are fortunate to received funding from Friends of the Institute and Cargill, Inc for this project.
The wooden crates that the students will create their ofrendas in have been ordered and delivered to the school; they are apple crates.
Thanks for following.
