Hive Learning Network NYC, dedicated to the integration of education and digital media, has teamed up with the Brooklyn Public Library for a six-month-long fashion project. "What We Wear: Hip Hop Fashion in Brooklyn" draws from the endlessly inspiring street style of the borough and involves the Bushwick, Central, East Flatbush and Williamsburg branches. Once a week at each location, between January and June, teens will head out to photograph their favorite looks, learn about style blogging and upload their shots to the Web. In addition, professionals will host master classes in such subjects as photography, blogging and Photoshop.
In June, the photos will be exhibited at the four libraries. The program is part of a two-year Hive Fashion initiative, in which organizations across New York City and Chicago will create activities for youth that result in innovative experiences and the availability of rich resources. The January 15 session begins at 4:30pm in the Central Library's youth wing.
