Adobe Youth Voices Summit 2013
August 12-16, 2013 – Santa Clara, California
The AYV Summit is a week-long gathering of young people and educators from around the world to celebrate the creativity and promise of the next generation. Young people from twenty-three countries bring their creative thinking and boundless imagination to make media about issues important to them that shares their vision for positive change.
The youth attending the Summit have been hand selected and have previously participated in the Adobe Youth Voices program. The Summit provides an immersive media arts experience, where youth will collaborate with creative professionals and luminaries, learning critical skills that they can bring back to their local communities.
The AYV Summit also celebrates innovative educators from around the world who are passionate about fostering creativity. Thirty educators engage in intensive professional development and workshops in creative tools to further develop young people’s creative skills.
The week culminates in AYV Live, a showcase event in which outstanding young leaders share their creative work and communicate their ideas for personal, local, and community change.
