What do a youth arts festival and a farm-to-table restaurant have in common?

Wide Angle Youth Media has produced the Who Are You? Youth Media Festival since 2005. Held every April, the event showcases artwork made by over 300 Baltimore youth. A commitment to localism is intrinsic to the festival’s mission: to build local audiences for local youth voices in order to strengthen ties and foster understanding in our community. Woodberry Kitchen is also built upon the principle of localism - partnering with local farmers and business in the Chesapeake region to provide a farm-to-table experience. Woodberry Kitchen provides a model for how to build a business based on the values of community, sustainability and strong relationships.
