In Girls Write Now’s cutting edge Digital Media Mentoring Program, girls create at the intersection of language, technology, and art. The professional women in media who serve as mentors support teens as they explore writing through video and audio production, interaction design, creative programming, animation, and more.
The QWERTY Digital Media Exhibition showcases innovative genre-and medium-bending work by New York City teens — with a panel of digital game changers moderated by Jenna Wortham, staff writer at the New York Times Magazine and co-host of Still Processing.
Panelists include: Jasmyn Lawson, GIPHY Culture Editor; Janice Morris, Head of Lifestyle and Publishing at Twitter’s Global Media Partnerships; game and wearable tech designer Kaho Abe; and artist/VP Education, Strategy & Innovation Girls Who Code, Leah Gilliam.
Join us on June 2, 6-8PM at Downtown Community Television Center, 87 Lafayette St, New York, NY 10013.
Open to the public, suggested $20 donation, free for teens and family.
QWERTY is the culmination of Girls Write Now’s 2016-17 Digital Media Mentoring Program in partnership with Parsons The New School for Design. This program is made possible with leadership funding from the New York City Council STARS Citywide Girls Initiative, The Edmond de Rothschild Foundation, Blanchette Hooker Rockefeller Fund, News Corp, Winifred Johnson Clive Foundation, Malka Fund of the Jewish Communal Fund, Patrina Foundation, and The PIMCO Foundation.
