New York City youth from the Educational Video Center live, learn, and make documentaries and a website together with rural youth in Appalachia’s Clearfork Valley community of East Tennessee. Turning their cameras on systemic issues including the opioid epidemic and the right to broadband access, the teenagers learn how interconnected their urban and rural communities really are. Rooted in EVC's NYC-Appalachia Student Video Exchange from the 1980's, the We Are All Connected project brings youth from these communities together to help bridge our rural-urban divides.
