DARE TO DREAM

THE DARE TO DREAM PROJECT

 The Dare to Dream Project is a dynamic media arts initiative for New York City high school students and educators. The program is both a hands-on project-based curriculum and a professional development provider. The program is part of a leading-edge 21st century approach to learning. At the heart of the program is the integration of technology and new media into the classroom. The program runs during the school day and after-school, depending on the school, in coordination with a teacher,. Each session with the students involves media production workshops that lead to students creating their own media projects, primarily video. Together, teacher and teaching artists mentor students on how to use cameras, editing software, and the internet to learn about a specific theme and express their own views and that of their community.

Our project-based approach is to prepare students for college and work experience. Classroom sessions are designed to stimulate discussion among the students and  engage in group work.  The curriculum is most appropriate for art, history, civics, and global studies classes learning about contemporary issues. Typically, the program is a six-month intensive where students are encouraged to use media to learn about the world and become objective observers of information.

The Dare to Dream Media and Arts Festival is annual event to celebrate the work of young producers from NYC high schools. It take place at an extraordinary space every year. Previous events have been held at The Queens Museum of Art and The Caribbean Cultural Center in midtown Manhattan.
