PORTRAITS: Amanda Carter- 330

Amanda Carter went to law school, studied in Paris, and has lit up stages and sound booths with her rapping. But her most important work came with City Art Space; an afterschool program dedicated to giving voice to children within the Allison Hill area of the city of Harrisburg. Offering opportunities for kids to write, produce, and sing their own music, City Art Space aims to raise the esteem and foster the creative and critical thinking of Harrisburg’s youth.

SHORT FILM: Rise, Harrisburg

We all fall. We all rise. Cities are no different. For Harrisburg residents, the stories told indicate a long fall from grace for Pennsylvania’s capital city. In the last few years, however, the city has been on the rise.

From Midtown to Downtown, business owners and Vietnam veterans, these are the voices of Harrisburg, and their opinions of a city that they hope to see thrive.

This video includes interviews with citizens across central Pennsylvania, and originally played at Harrisburg’s Midtown Cinema as part of TEDx Harrisburg.
