access to media education society


AMES is a registered charity (est. 1996) based in British Columbia, Canada dedicated to using the media arts to support youth-led community development, encourage peer-based expression and education and promote social change.

AMES programs primarily engage young people who have lived experience with various forms of oppression and provide them with safe spaces to creatively reflect on issues that are relevant and meaningful to them.
