Arts in Action
Musicians, visual artists, actors, media creators, and writers have always played a role in advancing social and cultural change. During this weeklong program, artists of all disciplines will work together and learn how to channel their talents towards real world activism. We will hear from guest artists and activists who are currently using their work to impact our world. Students will collaborate on a final multimedia project and that will be recorded and made available online. If you have a passion for the arts and an interest in social justice, this program is for you. Open to artists, digital media creators, musicians, singers, actors, writers, and anyone who wants to learn how to use their talents for the greater good.
Gaming and Video Storytelling for the Web
Game Studies is an emergent field that combines theoretical knowledge of gaming practices with video game production. Video Storytelling for the Web combines agile film technologies (GoPro, DJI Mini, DSLR Cameras, etc.) with simple coding skills to make dynamic web‐first media. This track will combine the two for an exciting and interesting week highlighting our Digital Humanities and New Media program at Molloy College. We will give students the opportunity to critically play video games and learn analytic frameworks for their study as both media artifacts and creative outlets. Students will learn beginner‐friendly game design programs such as Twine, RPG Maker, and GameMaker as well as non‐digital game design and avant garde methods. Students will also leave with Youtube content, images, and .gifs, all of their own creation.
