WRITE / CODE / SPEAK: Interactive Media Showcase 2014

May 3, 2014 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

WRITE / CODE / SPEAK features high school girls’ dynamic multimedia stories told through new platforms for writing. Using a variety of mixed media, including traditional writing, audio, GIFs, and HTML coding, the interactive installations of WRITE / CODE / SPEAK showcase the writers’ unique voices, backgrounds, and experiences as high school students in New York City. Youth writers present their media pieces with performances, encouraging the audience to experience their creative processes and stories. This showcase represents the culmination of the Girls Write Now Digital Media Mentoring Program for 2013-14.

In collaboration with Art in General, a nonprofit that assists artists with the production and presentation of new work and informs and engages the public about their work, WRITE / CODE / SPEAK also features artist Lisi Raskin. Her exhibition Recuperative Tactics serves as the backdrop for the youth showcase.

The Digital Media Mentoring Program functions in partnership with Parsons The New School for Design, supported by The Hive Digital Media Learning Fund in the New York Community Trust, with additional support from the Edmond de Rothschild Foundations, Pinkerton Foundation, the Patrina Foundation, and the National Endowment for the Arts.

RSVP now to rsvp@girlswritenow.org.
