Student Projects

The 2016 Leadership Collective took a hands on, student centered approach to exploring our host cities.

PROJECT WITH MGIS

FILM PROJECTS
In Madurai, students worked with videographer Chris Witschy to produce short films on a location or cultural element that was interesting to them. Working in small groups of 3-4 and accompanied by a translator, students spent two days at the location observing, interviewing, and documenting the space. At the end, they produced and edited a short film on their observations.
