Over the past year Kids and families have found ways to stay creative and imaginative while staying safely at home, using their creativity to do everything from making art and building with LEGO bricks to producing their own videos, all in new and different ways to express their personal style. Inspired by these kids’ imaginations, the LEGO Group is conducting a search for its first-ever Kid Creative Director to join the Kids Creative Studio, a creative team led by kids and focused on showcasing and inspiring the imaginative superpowers of today’s youth.
The Kids Creative Studio was inspired by the recent launch of LEGO VIDIYO—a playful and innovative music video maker experience designed to celebrate and expand kids’ creativity and passion for music.
Along with receiving $10,000 to use towards their creative and educational endeavors, the winning Kid Creative Director will join a team of well-known kid creators who make up the Kids Creative Studio, along with creative professionals from the LEGO Group and Universal Music Group. Using LEGO VIDIYO and other creative tools, the studio will produce music videos, engaging content and a commercial that will launch this summer— putting their skills on display for the world to see.
“We’re thrilled to be able to empower kids to keep doing what they’ve been doing the last year and truly honor this creativity,” said Amanda Madore, senior brand relations manager at LEGO Systems, Inc. “We’ve seen the ways kids are reimagining play and the innovative ways they interact with their peers. We believe now is the perfect time to celebrate this creativity by turning over the creative reins to them, recognizing and rewarding kids for being the true creative superstars they are.”
