New York Times Covers Reckoning With Torture Project
With our nose to the grindstone since the open of 2012, MESH has been focused on everything from Global Studio in India to the local DigiSo Project. Yesterday, after over six months collaborating with change-makers at the national chapter of the ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union), the PEN American Center, and film-makers Doug Liman and Avram Ludwig, we finally launched the Reckoning With Torture Film Project. We’re so excited the New York Times has already covered the project in this article, pre-release, and can’t wait for user submitted content to become part of the Liman’s documentary through the site we built.
We are fully kicking off our MAKESHOP Fundraiser!
MAKESHOP is a creative placemaking project and public design space founded by MESH Design & Development. It nurtures creative entrepreneurship in Appalachia —and specifically, on the West Side’s Elk City.
