Education

Nomadic Wax Media Academy is an interactive series of media workshops designed to educate, inspire and encourage college and high school students to participate in new forms of artistic media creation.

Our international educators are award-winning, and our workshops have been presented at colleges, high schools, community centers, and museums around the world.

Nomadic Media Academy’s participatory pedagogy allows students to engage directly with producers, artists, musicians, and activists, and transforms campuses and classrooms into media production studios.

    • 
Students actively engage in a variety of issues and disciplines, from Global Politics to History, through exploring spoken and unspoken languages.

 

“Nomadic Wax was hip, professional, polished, on point, and edgy enough to make a difference with our audience. They speak, present, and perform from a grounding of great conscience and confidence.”

Dan ScheibeMiddlesex Boarding School Director of Student Life
