About Hook Arts Media

Originally known as Dance Theatre Etcetera, DTE achieved national acclaim for making the arts a critical component of urban renewal as well as its recovery efforts in Red Hook, Brooklyn. As the organization evolved, DTE rebranded as Hook Arts Media. This new identity reflects its focus on creative learning for community change, incorporating 21st-century technology into its arts education programs.

Hook Arts Media’s in-school multidisciplinary media and arts programs primarily serve NYC transfer high schools. Its community programs focus on digital media and computer literacy, preparing young people with college and/or career-readiness skills.

Support Our Students

Hook Arts Media’s filmmaking programs are dynamic job training opportunities that give many of NYC’s most vulnerable young people an hourly wage while they develop their skills and find sustainable career opportunities. In addition to learning professional filmmaking techniques, our students use their skills to think critically and engage with their community. Through our programs, students have explored issues like:

  • Street Harassment
  • Gun Violence
  • Reproductive Justice
  • Immigration

Our alumni have gone on to earn college scholarships, grants, film festival awards, and positions at prestigious organizations like MOMA PS1, Jax Media, Paramount, and NBC.

Hook Arts Media is proud to have established a pipeline to support young people to develop their filmmaking skills, cultivate soft skills for professional work environments, and find paying jobs in the film industry.

  • Summer Digital Boot Camp is a 4-week, 80-hour filmmaking intensive
  • Fall In Transition: Media is a 7-week documentary filmmaking course culminating in a series of mini-documentaries
  • There’s another In Transition: Media session in the spring.
  • Digital Connections is a pre-professional job training program that connects pre-professionals to the skills, opportunities, and work experience necessary to place them in paying positions within the city’s film industry.

But the average cost per student is nearly $30,000, which limits our ability to serve more of the city’s most vulnerable-and deserving- young people. The rising costs of space, security, and equipment threaten to edge out the already limited number of seats available for this vital program.

If you can support our students with a donation of any amount, we would be very grateful.
