We are proud to announce the launch of our fourth-annual global Clubhouse Network media festival, RE@CH: Revolutionizing Expression At The Clubhouse. We are excited to officially open the submission process NOW!
RE@CH is our signature platform for member media around the world. The goal is to encourage youth to express themselves about issues that are important to them. Participants will create media that describe their personal experiences and give voice to their ideas, feelings, and concerns. In addition, youth will gain exposure through exhibition opportunities that showcase their work.
Clubhouse youth have a history of creating media that speaks to their experiences and comments on the world around them. The RE@CH Media Festival aims to give young people a platform to get their media seen and heard by a wider audience. The initiative will also help them build their media creation skills & technical knowledge, encourage them to participate in the critical and reflective process of media making, and assist them with branding themselves.
Criteria for Selection will include:
- Thoughtful consideration of subject matter
- Quality of production
- Creative concept and/or unique approach to addressing the issue
- Conveying a strong point of view
- Clarity of message
- Adherence to guidelines
The festival and competition will culminate with online showcases, screenings at our signature Network-wide events, and exposure on the Clubhouse Village and Clubhouse Network social media accounts. Check out the finalists and winners from previous years.
