Out of School Time

Kickflip Program 

The Kickflip Program is a prototype for creating interest-driven learning among youth who are not already involved in adult-lead groups. Teen skateboarders pair with youth filmmakers from Reel Works’ teen producer program to record, create, and share stories and techniques from their unique vantage point of New York City. 

Kickflip is a collaboration between City Lore and Reel Works Teen Filmmaking, funded through the Hive Learning Project.



Bring to Light 

In 2011, a group of Youth Poets from Urban Word participated in a series of workshops in which they developed poems about place and learned how to use the image remixing program Modul8. The culminating multimedia exhibit transformed their written words into an artistic display of light projections to accompany their spoken word performance and occurred at the Bring to Light Festival on October 1, 2011 in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.  Bring to Light is an annual free nighttime event that brings together artists from around the globe to build site-specific, mainly light-based art installations.  

Bring to Light is a collaboration between City Lore and Urban Word funded through the Hive Learning Project.
