Media plays a vital role in the lives of today's youth. The 15th annual Multimedia in Focus 2013 Summer Media and Arts camp takes place June 9 – July 11.  The media and arts camp will introduce youth to the world of new media and multimedia arts. The mission of the Vision Multimedia Workshop is to introduce urban youth to the multimedia arts of digital video and interactive media. By providing access to high quality hardware and software, participants will learn to create multimedia and traditional art content. The program features college-trained instructors and professional-level hardware and software. Multimedia in Focus is one of the many summer programs that receive grants provided by the Lilly Endowment Summer Youth Program Fund. We offer five, one-week sessions this summer. Come one week or all five. Take different workshops each week.
