Free Spirit Media End of Summer Celebrations


By FSM Communications

Summer is over but Free Spirit Media’s end of summer celebrations were unforgettable!

FSM News West, FSM News South, Flash Forward and Thrive each hosted events

celebrating and honoring youth artist work.

FSM News West

Over the past few summers, FSM News West has partnered with the Pulitzer Center On Crisis Reporting to create documentaries. The mentors from the Pulitzer Center attended the screening and banquet and celebrated the hard work of the youth artists in producing these documentaries over the summer! Watch them here:

FSM News South

This summer, FSM News South produced a variety of newscasts on everything from generational differences to Chicago in the summer. Check them out below:


Flash Forward

Flash Forward is InPathways's summer internship and fellowship program. AbelCine CHI hosted the Celebration of Learning breakfast where the interns and fellows presented on what they learned over the summer and we acknowledged and thanked all of our host site partners. 


In partnership with Thrive Chicago and The Ark of St. Sabina, Free Spirit Media provided a unique work experience for a cohort of 6-8 young men and women of color, ages 16-24. Check out photos from the exciting summer session!
