Creative Imagination Powered by Technology
6th Grade Students
#PhillyBeatz is a technology based creativity celebration designed for 6th graders. First, Kimmel Center artists visit classrooms to deliver a creative writing workshop. Then, students create a video set to beats provided by a Kimmel Center headliner. After submitting initial uploaded videos, Kimmel Center supports Talent Shows at each participating school. From these shows, student representatives will be selected who will engage in music technology classes in the Kimmel Center’s learning lab. Those students then return to their school groups to share what they’ve learned and create more complex videos for submission. Finally, classmates, families and friends are bused to the Kimmel Center Cultural Campus for a Creativity Festival celebrating student accomplishments.
