DreamYard Project Advances Digital Creativity with Hive Learning Network NYC

« Back

May 21, 2012

In December 2010, The New York Community Trust joined with the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation to create Hive Digital Media Learning Fund in The New York Community Trust to promote adolescents’ and teens’ learning anytime, anywhere through digital media. DreamYard Project (Bronx, NY) is a former grantee and member of Hive Learning Network NYC. All grantees are members of the network work together on projects, sharing what works—and what doesn’t—in the ever-evolving worlds of digital media and education.

DreamYard received two Hive grants in 2011. The first was a $100,000 grant in Spring 2011 to work with Cooper-Hewitt and The Point Community Development Corporation on A City of Neighborhoods: the Bronx Citizen Advocate Project. The project explored local environmental problems and gathered information using their social media networks and hand-held devices with video, photo, and GPS capabilities. They received a second grant of $25,000 in Fall 2011 for workshops in graphic and web design; and video, audio, and music production for Bronx youth. The Hive network includes some of New York’s most prominent arts and cultural institutions including Bronx Museum of the Arts, Parsons the New School for Design, Brooklyn Public Library, and New York Public Radio.
