Elementz recently held a breakfast presentation with the creative community to lay out a new vision called “Creative Futures” for the artistic urban youth that attend Elementz. In this vision we spoke of our junior high and teenage youth participating in artistic college prep programs at Elementz that are led by the University of Cincinnati DAAP & The CCM EMedia program. These programs would facilitate a pathway to college for our youth in area’s such as design, architecture, audio engineering, and videography. At the the end of this vision we see our youth completing college and then finding a future creative career in Cincinnati with local businesses.
The presentation was organized by Elementz Directors Tom Kent, Abdullah Powell and summer intern Nicolas Carr who recently graduated with a masters from UC DAAP.
We are grateful for the support of local creative companies and the University of Cincinnati.
