YO! Youth Media Showcase 2009 celebrates the stories, images, and graphic design work of talented teenagers who through their artistic visions, bring their communities alive. The works on view were produced during 2008-09 through the Digital Studio located within UCR/California Museum of Photography in downtown Riverside. A reception will take place during 1st Thursday ARTSwalk, September 3rd, from 6:00pm - 8:00pm. The youth artists will be present and refreshments served.

The projects include a video by Janelle and Janon Vincent featuring a song by pop music star JOJO, and portraits by students in the Tech Tuesday Saturated Media Workshop. There will also be a screening of short documentaries, public service announcements, and autobiographical digital stories by participants in this summer's MyGlobalVillage social media camp. MGV 2009 witnessed its strongest enrollment to date with over fifty young people ages 14-19, taking part. Yo! will run through Friday, October 30th.
