Mount Sinai, NY (PRWEB) December 13, 2005
Ambient Media Inc. today announced the launch of the New York New Media Collaborative (NYNMC), an initiative that brings together schools, educators, and students involved in art and media programs in New York. The NYNMC promotes opportunities for art and media scholarships, funding for the purchase of much needed program supplies and equipment for member schools, and more through commercial collaborative media projects.
“We are awestruck by the level of creativity and the quality of the work we have seen from students in various art and media programs in New York schools. Sadly, these under-promoted and often under-funded art and media programs are usually the first things to be cut when school budget votes fail. Through the NYNMC initiative, the efforts of these talented educators and students can be brought to light. The NYNMC works to fund scholarships, purchase supplies, equipment, and whatever else these art and media programs need to continue to thrive.” said Jerry Hunt, President of Ambient Media Inc. and co-founder of NYNMC.
The NYNMC community is powered by Groupee, the leading online community service. CEO Ted O'Neill says, "We are proud to be part of this initiative; Groupee is all about bringing people together, and this is a great example of how our products facilitate online connections in order to achieve real-world goals."
