Background

The Media History Timeline was initially conceived as a workshop written by G.A.P. staff (Sumitra Rajkumar, Binh Ly, Pilar Valdes, Teresa Basilio, Dan O’Reilley Rowe) as part of a core curriculum to use in all of our programs. We were inspired by the use of timelines by Project South. Through support from various generous funders and individuals, including the New York Community Trust and the Hive Digital Media Learning Fund, we were able to move this workshop from a paper timeline to an online resource.
