Ginsburg worked with the kids on a marketing campaign for their own “film,” a video documenting their year-long experience working on “Art Creates Communities”. The kids were the actors in the movie, and for Ginsburg’s project they had to assume alternative roles by analyzing and promoting the footage. The students designed a poster and wrote reviews for the film.
