2001: Faces of tomorrow works with schools around the world as part of the
2001 Boston Cyberarts Festival!
and international youth will be adding their images to over 400
images during the spring 2001. In schools and afterschool programs young
people are learning advanced graphic design while capturing their visions and
ideas through portraiture.
Join us to add your images to those currently here, in this ever expanding gallery
of youth cyberart!
of Tomorrow is a web-based project which invites youth to submit self images
in the form of photos, digital images, drawings, and combinations of media.
This project was a part of the first statewide Boston
CyberArts Festival that took place May 1-15, 1999. It culminated in a gala
opening and exhibition at the Computer
Museum in Boston for the Boston Cyberarts Festival from May 1-15, 1999.
The project was organized by a committee of teachers, as well as professionals
active in the world of nonprofit computer centers. Web development and hosting
services are generously donated by Imagicians
Interactive, a full services Internet development agency. See
a full list of our sponsors.
During the Spring, 2000 we received sponsorship from Cadillac
/GM to bring this project to over 300 middle school students in the Boston
area. The six school districts received software and hardware donations. Professional
cyberartists trained teams of computer and art teachers and everyone celebrated
at a kick-off at the Museum of
Science. Student artists displayed their work, gallary-style, at their local
Cadillac dealership. Look for their images among those displayed here.
Currently we are producing a resource guide for technology coordinators and
instructors who wish to participate in a classroom setting which will include
user-friendly instructions, lesson plans, and additional resources in each geographic
area. If you are interested in a resource
guide, you can download our PDF version from the web site. To receive a
resource guide by mail, or for further questions about this project, contact
Jennifer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can reach our website administrator at: email@example.com,
if you have problems uploading your images, or if you have technical questions.
Good luck! We look forward to seeing your submissions.
