Media Workshops with Dr. Assaf
February 17 @ 12:30 pm - 4:30 pm
This is a free 10-week workshop offered by the Islamic Center of Passaic County, ICPC and is cosponsored by the Palestinian American Community Center. Participation is open to anyone with a quantifiable commitment to first understanding the pivotal role of the media in our lives and, second and more succinctly, a solid understanding of the challenges and opportunities facing our community as it navigates the ever-changing and multifaceted constructs of the American political scene.
The workshop will harness and focus participants skills to write short responses either as letters-to-the-editor, online comments and pen opinion pieces publishable in local, and national newspapers, blogs, public testimonies, and presentations. A more detailed workshop syllabus will be posted shortly. A certificate will be presented to those who successfully complete the workshop.
Registration is very limited and will be offered on a first-come basis. A short resume is strongly requested and must be submitted no later than February 15, 2017. A workshop will start on Saturday, February 17, 2018. 100% attendance is expected. Online collaboration will form an important part of the workload and the required homework.
