Cambridge Educational Access participant Alex Ayabe has received first place in the “Music Video” category of the Hometown Video Festival.
The Award is given annually to the media artist that demonstrates creativity and innovation in producing community media. Sponsored by the Alliance for Community Media, the national umbrella organization of Public, Educational and Governmental (PEG) access centers, the Hometown Video Festival draws entries from around the world. Cambridge Educational Access (CEA) provides media art education programs for the Cambridge Public Schools (CPS), oversees programming and bulletin board services for two educational access cable channels, Smart TV98 and CPS TV99, and manages the Media Arts Studio at Cambridge Rindge and Latin High School (CRLS).
CEA is unique in our emphasis on programming our channels with student-produced work. Alex Ayabe created the winning entry in collaboration with the CRLS Visual and Performing Arts Vocal Ensemble and Dance programs. Alex graduated from Cambridge Rindge and Latin School in June 2009 and is currently pursuing a career in media making at the Art Institute of Philadelphia.
