Digital Day Camp 2011

Programming Series:

Digital Day Camp

Partner Organizations:

During Digital Day Camp 2011, 20 NYC teens will spend 3-weeks working under the guidance of a team of creative mentors to produce a series of deep, media-rich stories about our NYC neighborhoods. Their stories will become part of a web-based, interactive map that could include photographs, drawings, videos, music, games, words, infographics, etc—we are limited only by our imagination.
Final projects will be presented at a public event organized and promoted by Eyebeam.

Application period has passed.
Accepted students will be notified on Thursday, June 16
