Vivid Imagination began in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy in 2013. The goal was to provide students at P.S 43 a platform to create a documentary from the student’s perspective on the effects caused by the massive storm. The experience and validation the students gained producing their documentary, garnered awards and media recognition. This made it clear that there was something special brewing. It was from this moment our aim of empowerment through digital technologies was conceived. Since then, we have made it our first priority that all of our programs impart skills and opportunities that students can actually take with them to jobs, career, and college opportunities.
