In a marriage of action sports and photography, FUJIFILM North America Corporation and STOKED have partnered to provide students in New York and Los Angeles unprecedented access to professional photography equipment and mentors.
Through monthly workshops, weekend events, and in-school programming, STOKED students are gaining invaluable experience shooting portraits, tweaking lighting, building sets, and much more. Additionally, FUJIFILM is STOKED’s exclusive digital camera/lens partner, as all STOKED happenings are captured on the latest FUJIFILM X-Series equipment.
Through a partnership with, Brooklyn-based digital agency, HUGE we were able to take our Brand Building Program to the next level! Utilizing a curriculum, developed in conjunction with HUGE, which draws from Stanford University Design School’s “Design Thinking Process”, students identify a problem in their community, analyze the situation through research and interviews, prototype and test solutions, evaluate results, refine their approach, and prepare presentations.
As a result, our students have tackled real-world issues affecting their communities, such as treating teenage depression, providing hygiene/menstrual products for women in the shelter system, and curbing the rise of rent in low-income neighborhoods.
beyond the streets
Beyond The Streets (BTS) is the premier exhibition of graffiti, street art and beyond, celebrating the soaring heights to which the world’s most recognizable modern art movement has risen.
Through a collaboration between BTS, Adidas Skateboarding, and STOKED, students gained early access to the groundbreaking installations, participated in a series of creative art workshops lead by street artists, and skated with pro skaters from Adidas.
LA Skate Movement
This project, backed by Mountain Dew and powered by Motive, gave the students the opportunity to use their insights on challenges skateboarders face in LA to give back to their community.
They created LA Skate Movement, a festival style event featuring a skatepark with custom designed elements (made possible by California Ramp Works), art, music, and photography workshops, food trucks to fuel the excitement, and swag boasting the LA Skate Movement Logo which was designed by one of the students.
The DEWeezy Campaign, brought Motive and STOKED youth together to create a Mountain Dew commercial featuring Lil’ Wayne.
STOKED youth received a crash course in commercial production, working on the project from concept to post-production. From field trips to sets and sound studios to training and mentorship, students emerged with invaluable professional insight and skills. This is the commercial our students created.
