Community Media Project


The Community Media Project (founded in 1985) is a division of the UWM Peck School of the Arts Film Department that serves diverse audiences by presenting engaging and ground-breaking screenings and film forums representing the many and scattered African Diaspora.

The mission of the CMP is to provide artistic programming and outreach for under-served audiences – at UWM and in Milwaukee’s central city. We do this by offering free film screenings and film and video workshops.

Since its inception, the CMP has provided programming that is diverse and inclusive in its scope. Much of what we have accomplished has been facilitated through partnerships with community-based agencies (YMCA, Boys and Girls Clubs, Children's Outing Association, Mid-Town Neighborhood Association, Neighborhood House, Journey House and El Puente Alternative High School).
