Two years ago community members and an Indigenous youth empowerment media collective called “Outta Your Backpack Media” (OYBM) came together with a vision to establish a space that cultivates active resistance to capitalism, environmental & social injustices in and around our community of Flagstaff. Since then Taala Hooghan infoshop has hosted all ages shows, film screenings of hard to find political movies, the Free Free Market, silkscreening, D.I.Y. art skill shares, and provided meeting and event space for other organizations. OYBM has worked with more than 300 youth and produced dozens of short films at free youth workshops, some of which have been screened nationally and internationally at film festivals.
Taala Hooghan & OYBM volunteers are continuing their efforts for a more just and sustainable world and have found a new larger location in downtown Flagstaff. To help with the move we are looking for continued community support. There’s lots of work that needs to be done: space renovation, painting, volunteer staffing, event planning, monetary donations for rent, equipment, and much more.
We are inviting folks/organizations to attend our meetings to learn more about us
and how you can get involved!
