PopLyfe and musician D’wayne Wiggins – formerly of Tony Toni Tone – are among the invited guests for the OCCUR’s Eastmont Technology Center and Computer Clubhouse Open House on May 24.
From from 5 to 7 p.m., OCCUR/ETC is hosting the Open House to increase awareness of the “Clubhouse,” as well as showcase the creative and inspiring projects youth members have created through their work with Adobe Youth Voices. The Eastmont Intel Computer Clubhouse is a digital media after-school program, where low-income youth, ages 10-18, can discover and create through technology, work with mentors to explore their own ideas, develop skills and build self-confidence through the use of technology. The Clubhouse offers Oakland youth support in designing 3D models, mixing digitized music, experimenting with image processing, animation and learning video production.
This year, Clubhouse members collectively created five high quality video projects featuring innovative views on community issues and solutions including one about preventing neighborhood blight and littering entitled “Trash Zombies” and a short film about the dangers of texting while driving entitled, “Driving + Texts = Wrecks.”
Funding is provided by Adobe Youth Voices – the Adobe Foundation’s global signature philanthropy program designed to provide youth in underserved communities with the critical skills they need to become active and engaged members of their communities and the global society.
