OF UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN-MILWAUKEE
The CMP is a division of the Film Department in the Peck School of the Arts. It brings cutting edge film and video from the scattered African Diaspora-to Milwaukee.
The Community Media Project (CMP) is an arts outreach program of the film department and the Peck School of the Arts and has been in existence since 1985. It's Director is Portia Cobb-Heyward, an associate professor in the film department at UWM.
The mission of the CMP is to provide artistic programming and outreach for under-served audiences--at UWM and in Milwaukee’s central city. We do this by offering free film screenings and production workshops for teachers and young producers.
The CMP's programming is diverse and inclusive in its scope. Much of what we have accomplished has been facilitated through partnerships with community-based agencies ( America's Black Holocaust Museum, The Black Historical Society, The Greater Milwaukee YMCA, Boys and Girls Clubs, Children's Outing Association, Mid-Town Neighborhood Association, Neighborhood House, Journey House and El Puente Alternative High School).
You can listen to a recent interview with Portia Cobb on the WUWM "UWM Today Program" via podcast and another done at NPR Affiliate in Charleston with Jon Mack accessible at: http://hiottm.prople.coc.edu
Donations to the UWM foundation can be made on our behalf.
