Music Unites, The National Jazz Museum, and the World Wide Workshop want YOU to help create a video game!
The National Jazz Museum in Harlem is teaming up with the World Wide Workshop to create an innovative VIDEO GAME! We are looking for 6 special young people between the ages of 13-19 who we'll select and appoint as our official game designers.
This team of 6 prospective candidates must have the facility to present strong ideas, yet create and incorporate the ideas of the team as a whole. An emphasis is placed on the candidate's ability to use JAZZ music, innovation, and a compelling video game objective to efficiently create a product that will attract both young people and adults alike. Prospective candidates should have the facility to adopt World Wide Workshop and the National Museum of Harlem's existing visual identity. No previous experience necessary. Only requirement: captivating, original ideas.
The programming will take place for 3 weeks from July 6 - July 27 (Mon-Fri only) at the National Jazz Museum in Harlem office. In the afternoons the 6 game designers will collaborate on creating this new game. The experience will be interactive, including live performances, masterclasses, and trips to many exciting and historic NYC jazz locations.
The host for the entire summer workshop is rising star pianist Jonathan Batiste and his band. Each day he will have something unique to offer, never boring, and allowing the 6 game designers to truly immerse themselves in this music we call JAZZ!
