Collecting MadVideos -- A PSA on skateboarding
on

As skateboarding has grown to ubiquity over the last couple of decades, negative responses to the activity have emerged commensurately. This includes anti-skating devices, those small-raised obstructions placed in a series on railings, curbs, and numerous other outdoor landscapes to prevent grinding and jumping by skateboarders. Ever consider the problems they cause in Madison?

A tongue-in-cheek PSA about the issue follows below.

This PSA was one of many created for a visual communications class at the Madison Area Technical College. Other 60-second spots created and published online include a voting PSA and a domestic violence PSA.

Seriously speaking, the Madison Skatepark Fund is working to create a free public space for skateboarding in the heart of the city. They are working with the Urban Open Space Foundation, the city, and east-side stakeholders like the Lussier Teen Center and the Wil-Mar Neighborhood Center to bring this plan to fruition, potentially in the East Rail Corridor Park, that is, the long-discussed Central Park. More information about the progress made by the Skatepark Fund since 2000 is available here.

If you wish to let us know about more videos by, of, and about Madison and Madisonians, please consider adding them to the IsthmusYouTube group or send a message.
