Three iterations of a two-week summer bridge program for area students where they would research a topic on the region’s cultural heritage and produce a documentary film of their work.

Helena College proposes a summer bridge program for high school and at-risk college students to research topics that situate present issues of small-town, rural America in the context of the past; produce documentary films; and enroll in humanities pathways. Students will learn interdisciplinary humanities methodologies, principles, and debates as they select appropriate historical photographs, newspaper articles, literature, and moving images, write a script, interview local experts and historians, design graphics, and develop the promotion and distribution plan for their production. Three summer programs will focus on topics that represent under-explored aspects of the region’s cultural heritage: 1) a comparative analysis of Montana’s pandemics in 1918 and 2020; 2) the crucial yet overlooked role of people of color in the region’s formation; and 3) the impact of mining waste on community and ecology. The program will utilize community resources and strengthen humanities pathways.
