Out of School Time
Kickflip is an interest‐driven, connected learning program designed to impact teen skateboarders for whom school is often not a safe or constructive learning environment. The program was developed through a partnership between City Lore and the Harold Hunter Foundation and funded by the Hive Digital Media Learning Fund of the New York Community Trust. Additional partners have included Reelworks Teen Filmmaking and Parsons School of Design.

Bring to Light
In 2011, a group of Youth Poets from Urban Word participated in a series of workshops in which they developed poems about place and learned how to use the image remixing program Modul8. The culminating multimedia exhibit transformed their written words into an artistic display of light projections to accompany their spoken word performance and occurred at the Bring to Light Festival on October 1, 2011 in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Bring to Light is an annual free nighttime event that brings together artists from around the globe to build site-specific, mainly light-based art installations.
Bring to Light is a collaboration between City Lore and Urban Word funded through the Hive Learning Project.
