YOUmedia – Create Chicago

During the Summer of 2014, six Hive Chicago organizations piloted a one-week design and fashion project with the Burberry Foundation called Create. Students engaged in the creative process and produced targeted videos responding to the “Creativity for Good” prompt. Learn more about the pilot project and the organizations below.

YOUmedia at Chicago Public Library received the opportunity to host the Create Challenge. The Create Challenge was a one week, design-thinking challenge. The goal of this intensive week included students creating a 30-90 second video for the Creativity for Good campaign. YOUmedia hosted close to 15 brand new YOUmedia students in the project out which came three vides discussing topics of individuality in fashion, the violence in Chicago, and stereotypes of women. Take a look at the work produced by this group in one short week!
