The Intel Computer Clubhouse Network is honored to host the kick-off event for MCC’s yearlong celebration marking 20 years of grant-making through the MCC’s YouthReach Initiative. Join us as we amplify the voices of Boston-area youth by representing youth’s achievements and the impact of youth programs in the community.

More on Mass Cultural Council Youth Reach
The Massachusetts Cultural Council (MCC) is a state agency that promotes excellence, access, education, and diversity in the arts, humanities, and interpretive sciences to improve the quality of life for all Massachusetts residents and contribute to the economic vitality of our communities.

More on Intel Computer Clubhouse Network
The Computer Clubhouse provides a creative and safe out-of-school learning environment where young people from underserved communities work with adult mentors to explore their own ideas, develop skills, and build confidence in themselves through the use of technology.

We seek work with a focus on youth-led exploration about identity, culture, community, global view or other socially relevant topics. All videos and demonstrations should be youth-made by teens and created during the Fall 2012 – Fall 2013 timeframe. Final pieces for the Showcase will be selected by a team from MCC and ICCN along the criteria of relevance to the theme, creativity, and innovation.

DEMO Spec requirements:
Demonstrations should be dynamic, interactive, hands-on and reflect the work of your program. Demonstrations hosted between 4:30 and 5:30 PM at Museum of Science.

VIDEO Spec requirements:
Videos should be no more than 3-5 minutes but excerpts of longer videos are acceptable. Genre can include documentary, short-short, fiction and animation. Videos will screen at 6PM followed by a Q&A session with youth video-makers. Please provide a link to the video on a video sharing site (YouTube/Vimeo) but we will also ask you provide a full quality DVD ahead of time for the Showcase itself.
