Applications are sought for this year's Adobe Youth Voices, a programme which works with arts educators to enable young people (aged 13 to 18) to create compelling videos, animations, photo essays, presentations, music, and other pieces that contribute the essential perspectives of youth to critical topics and inspire new solutions to long-standing problems.
This year Eastside Educational Trust will be supporting up to 35 teachers and educators in schools, youth groups and arts organisations throughout the UK to develop their own youth media projects. The media created will be submitted onto the Adobe Youth Voices global media platform and screened at the BFI or exhibited at a number of exhibitions throughout the year.
There is also an opportunity for participants to be involved in a ‘Rough Cut Review’ where industry professionals comment on their work part way through the process and young people learn to critique each other’s work.
UK schools can receive a software donation of up to 30 licenses for Photoshop Elements and Premiere Elements as well as the opportunity to apply for up to £300 of funding towards their own youth media projects.
Educators will each receive up to 35 hours of professional development training as well as 10 hours of creative mentoring by a digital artist and the opportunity to become part of a global AYV community through a digital sharing platform and network.
