I will be planning, curating, and managing the event. Being that I am also an alumni of the Urban Arts Partnership program, this is a great way for me to help create a networking space for these artists as well as put my skills to work. This project will help my professional development being that I am a Digital Media Management student. While I love to learn in a classroom, I also learn best from experience. What better experience is there than putting my communication, media and management skills to work. This project will show my future employers that I am dedicated and serious about what I want to do.
It's Not Just About Me...
...it's about the art. When I was a student at UAP there was something about getting on stage and singing a song I wrote and produced. It's a great feeling being able to share your work with others and have it acknowledge, it all of a sudden feels so real. Other creatives should have be able to share this feeling with me. I would love to create a space where people who are already in creative fields are interacting with youth who are the future of those fields.
My project will create a positive social impact because it creates a space where young people can enjoy being able to showcase it to others. I hope that this will help inspire others to want to show their work more and possible create safe spaces for others to share their creativity with the world. I'm hoping my project will reach the world. I want to inspire other youth and show that we can do anything as long as we can think it. Whether you are the one putting on the exhibition or participating you have a vision and your vision matters. My target audience is other creative youth who are looking to network with individuals who are in creative fields they would like to work in.
How Can Adobe Help?
This grant would mean creating the space I've talked about. Giving the means to allow young artists to flourish, network and share their art. I hope that if given the opportunity to make this happen, that it will not be a one time thing. The grant goes beyond just money, it would also mean that Adobe believes in its creative scholars and stands by helping the creative youth of America express themselves outside of school and homes.
