To demolish or not to demolish? That is the question on everyone's mind. With waterfront development on the horizon, what is the future of the infamous Memorial Auditorium? Will it be developed or will it follow the path of yet another failed Buffalo development plan?
Buffalo's Waterfront was the topic of the BUFFALO YOUTH MEDIA INSTITUTE in 2007. A collaboration between Squeaky Wheel and Preservation Buffalo Niagara, the BUFFALO YOUTH MEDIA INSTITUTE is a youth media and community history initiative which gives up to 20 young people (age 13-18/8th-12th grade) from Buffalo, NY and surrounding areas the opportunity to learn about the history of their local community by making documentaries about Buffalo. The project starts in September and ends in June and has been funded by the John R. Oishei Foundation, the Margaret L. Wendt Foundation, the Baird Foundation, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
