Are you an artist-educator working at the intersections of art, technology, and access?
Come share your skills during Digital Day Camp (DDC), a summer arts and technology intensive for NYC high school students! Each session will cover the same content and instruction, and availability to teach a workshop during both sessions is preferred.
Session 1: July 15th - July 26th, 9:30am to 4pm (Mon - Fri)
Session 2: July 29th - August 9th, 9:30am to 4pm (Mon - Fri)
Where: 2 Metrotech @ NYU Tandon / Game Center, Downtown Brooklyn
Who: Appx. 20 high school students aged 14-18 (per session) with various levels of experience with technology
What we are looking for:
Classes or workshops that teach skills and explore how technology impacts our lives. Especially helpful to keep in mind is this year's residency theme of ACCESS:
How can artist-initiated projects and new technologies disrupt and refigure legislated and often constricted measures of access? How can we think about access as a process informed through lived experience? How does access construct relationships with the world and with each other? And more specifically, how does a multiplicity of intersectional, lived experiences such as disability, race, and gender inform, challenge, and invite reimaginings of what digital and physical access can be?
We are seeking proposals for classes that uphold our guiding principles:
- Openness: to teach technology through art, encouraging self-expression and inquiry with the goal to create learning habits that are long lasting and self-perpetuating.
- Justice: to engage students to think critically about technology practices and how they can be used to further social justice, equality, and activism.
- Invention: to empower youth to see technology as a tool for creation, enabling them to be producers, not only consumers.
Additionally, all programs/software used should be open-source, and workshops should take into consideration students' varying levels of experience with technology. All workshop documentation will be uploaded onto Github and Eyebeam's website to be shared with a larger community of students and educators. Click here for a workshop template.
$100 per 2 hour workshop. Workshops can range from 2 hours (half day) to 4 hours (full day). Payment will be delivered at the end of the session and payment rate would be dependent on length of class/workshop.
