Geotagging Cambridge: Street Photography in the Digital Age

A juried exhibition in the Karen Aqua Gallery at Cambridge Community Television

Geotagging Cambridge:Street Photography in the Digital Age is inspired by the way in which Instagram motivates the practitioner to see things differently, to notice the familiar, and to capture the ordinary in a remarkable way. With 200 million users in only 2.5 years, and 60 million posts shared every day, Instagram has become a part of the cultural vocabulary, influencing how we understand and interact with the world. Instagram is an innovative platform that permits new ways of seeing and understanding the “everyday” and the “commonplace” - in much the same way as street photography did at the end of the 19th century and continues to do so today.

Submissions to this exhibition must have been taken in Cambridge with a phone and posted to Instagram; there is no charge. Please submit up to five JPEGs by email no later than December 1, 2014 by midnight to the following address: allison@cctvcambridge.org Decisions will be made by December 4th. Selected works must be printed and delivered to the gallery (CCTV, 438 Massachu- setts Avenue, Cambridge), ready to hang (should include frame and/or hanging materials) by December 12th.

In your submission email, include your name, address, phone number and Identify your Instagram user name. For each image, include title, the date and exact location it was taken in Cambridge, and the framed dimensions (width x height in inches).

EXHIBITION DATES: December 17, 2014 – January 28, 2015
RECEPTION: January 25th from 5:30PM – 7:30PM

Exhibiting artists are encouraged to attend the reception and to talk about their work

The Youth Media Program Needs YOU!

CCTV - Sun, 11/16/2014 - 12:44pm

Each year, the Youth Media Program educates, empowers and inspires Cambridge teens to create media about who they are and the community in which they live. This year, we are in need of assistance to fund our growing school year program and we are asking friends like YOU to help!

Our goal is to raise $16,744 to support stipends for 13 youth during the school year. We are 74% of the way to our end-of-the-year fundraising goal and with your support, we know we can reach it! Help us educate, empower and inspire young people by engaging them in jobs as media artists!

Why Career Development Matters

Teens participating in the Youth Media Program learn important job skills and gain knowledge of educational and career opportunities.

"I am learning how to be responsible and manage my own money."

"I am learning about possible careers."

"I am thinking of pursuing a career in digital media or film production so my experience here will help with that."

Please consider making a tax-deductible donation today to support the Youth Media Program. Thank you for your continued support of Cambridge Community Television!

Why I Support CCTV: Daniel's Story

CCTV - Sun, 11/09/2014 - 6:59pm

I feel very lucky to have found CCTV when I did. In the fall of 2008 I wanted to start a new career in video production and post production. I was a writer, a musician, a painter, and a point-and-shoot photographer, but had very little experience in film or video. A friend suggested I become a "Belive" intern at CCTV. "Belive? CCTV?" I lived outside Cambridge. CCTV was off my radar. A Cambridge resident sponsored me and I started my internship.

In classes at CCTV I learned a variety of camera, lighting, sound, editing and studio techniques. The staff was always available to answer my interminable questions. Working on CCTV productions I acquired practical studio, field production, and editing experience.

CCTV was my springboard into professional workshops and employment. I now work regularly as a freelancer; shooting, editing and assisting a growing client list including production houses nationwide. CCTV teaching alumni and members are still great supporters and collaborators of mine.

I'm grateful for what I learned at CCTV. Now, in a position to offer modest financial support, I'm hoping to grow my contributions over time. I know from my own experience that CCTV changes lives and opens doorways. Thank you CCTV.

Tune in to Innovation in My Backyard

CCTV - Sun, 11/02/2014 - 1:35pm

Innovation in My Backyard, launched in 2011 with support from Novartis, is an effort to further enhance the Youth Media Program's career development goals by involving teens in the production of videos about different industries and career opportunities, particularly related to science, technology, engineering and math. This summer, Biogen Idec, Draper Laboratory and Novartis provided funding to this initiative. Youth Media Program teens interviewed professionals from these organizations, as well as from Amgen and Nuvu, and produced two powerful films. "Steam Powered Education," produced by Giovanni Jajoute, Sam Hermon and Abdullah Gheraissa, looks at the importance of educational programs that fuse arts and science. Melat Kassa, Priya Joyce and Samantha Liu's documentary, "A New Frame of Mind," was recognized at the Interlochen Center for the Arts' Future of Cinema Film Festival last weekend and explores women in science.

There are THREE ways to watch "A New Frame of Mind" and other media created during the Innovation in My Backyard initiative:
