Meet Wilgens Metelus

CCTV Youth Media Trainer is an artist in all senses of the word...

Wilgens Metelus is a familiar face at CCTV.  When he's most visible, you'll see him carrying a camera, doing man-on-the-street style interviews, asking locals to wish their loved ones a happy holiday or asking kids to describe their Halloween outfit.  It's when Wilgen is less visible that he's doing his most important work as a youth trainer for CCTV's Youth Media Program.  In between he's a multi-media artist open to experiment with a wide variety of genres.

Traversing Cambridge

Take a 'you day' and explore Cambridge with this mini map of ideas!

Imagine this. You wake up to the sound of birds chirping, the sun shining on your face, and a full day ahead of you. Only thing is, you have no plans. You try ringing a few friends to see if they want to take advantage of this beautiful day with you, but they all decline, citing ‘work’ or ‘going to the dentist.’ You find this strange because its a Saturday, but what do you know, some people are very passionate about maintaing healthy teeth.

Homeless Woman shares her story

I went out on the streets of Cambridge to hear people's stories, this is one of them.

In Central Square I approached a couple, (pictured above) and asked them their story. The woman told me their names were Jacquelyn Avery and Francis Lambert, and that he was her fiancée. Jacquelyn was ecstatic that I was taking interest in the homeless.

Unfortunately, a previous commitment prevented me from seeing the entire program. Mr. Blitzman, the First Justice of the Middlesex County, MA Juvenile Court, spoke on the problem nationwide. He made the point that some very anti-intuitive things are going on in our country. Sixty years after Brown vs.
