When: Sun., July 19 2015
Through July 29. The Youth Summit enrolls American and international delegates to participate in a music and multimedia program for high school-aged teens. During the course of the 10-day program, participants live on campus and work collaboratively to write and record a song and make a music video. They gain hands-on knowledge of the creative and technical processes of songwriting, recording, performance, and videography as well as experiential learning of the important life skills of teambuilding, collaboration, communication, and critical thinking. Integrated into the Summit are field trips to many of the cultural destinations and natural places the Berkshires play home to. The Summit concludes with a public performance of the delegates’ song, screening of their video, and a community forum of the teens’ experiences in the program.
