Project Management
Every project has a story


The Media Collaboratory is an incubator, an idea factory. We originate, nurture and manage ideas from conception to full operation and beyond, bringing creativity and consistent management skills to the project.

Keep It Real

Keep It Real: Don’t Drink Underage is a public/private partnership we initiated in 2004 with Bluegrass Prevention, the Kentucky State Police and the federal Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Program to educate high school students about the dangers of underage drinking. The project is an Internet/Video Contest that encourages students to create their own public service announcements about the dangers of underage drinking, enter them into an online competition, and become eligible for rewards of excellence given on our “Oscar Night.” To date, more than 5,000 students have participated with entries and more than 40,000 community members have visited the site. This is a project-based education program originated at the Media Collaboratory. Visit Website

History Happens

History Happens, at, is a collection of music videos about people who made a difference in American history. History Happens introduces music into the teaching/learning process. Students learn the songs naturally then remember the details of the story, thus developing a sense of place and character for American history. The program puts a “face” on history and students become ready to learn more becasue of their active knowledge of characters and places from history. Arthur Rouse and the Media Collaboratory in association with a community of songwriters and music artists from around the US produced all music. Visit Website
