Digital Investigation Premiere and Presentation

_Digital Investigation_ Premiere and Presentation

Since the Fresh Kills landfill closed on Staten Island over 15 years ago, NYC has exported all of its trash to other places to be buried or burned. Everyone from government officials to local residents has debated this complicated process, but one thing all folks agree on is that this current system is too costly and difficult to maintain. So where does our trash go and who makes these decisions? What’s the dirt on NYC’s mounting trash problem?

In our first Digital InvestigationCUP and Teaching Artist Dillon de Give partnered with students at Frances Perkins Academy in Greenpoint to dig deeper into the complicated world of garbage infrastructure. To find out more, students visited places like a local waste transfer station and a recycling facility. They interviewed key decision makers including a private waste carrier, an environmental activist, a Department of Sanitation staff member, and the chair of the City Council’s Sanitation Committee. 

During the past few months students collaborated with the Teaching Artist to edit and refine their findings into a documentary-style video that explains who decides where our trash goes, how else the system could work, and how the community can have a say in that decision. 

Join us for the debut of their video at the Wythe Hotel, where students will present the documentary and discuss their creative process.

This event is rescheduled for July 11th, 7pm.
