Vice Magazine And Intel Corporation have joined forces to launch The Creators Project, a multi-year program looking to "connect global youth through a common passion for creativity and technology." The initiative aims to identify "leading artists", helping them showcase their works and visions trough creative conferences, collaborative projects, and a new video site for the project.

The Creators Project has selected more than 80 artists from seven countries working in different mediums, including film director Spike Jonze, Yeah Yeah Yeahs guitarist Nick Zinner, French alternative rock band Phoenix, Chinese chiptune artist Sulumi, Major Lazer's Diplo, and indie game designer Mark "messhof" Essen (Cream Wolf, Flywrench; pictured).

As part of the program, Vice and Intel will hold The Creators Conference series, five international events that promise live concerts, art exhibits, film screenings, and panel discussions. The first one will take place on June 26th in New York City's Milk Studios, then will move to London, Sao Paulo, Seoul, and finally Beijing.

The inaugural Creators Conference will feature installations from London's United Visual Aritsts, an image and sound composition from Nick Zinner, screening and performances of Spike Jonze's newest film I'm Here, a global installation with LA-based directorial duo Radical Friend, and more.

You can learn more about the initiative with the newly launched Creators Project site, which will act as "an interactive portal and anthology" featuring original videos, works, and interviews from the 84 selected artists. The site will also eventually host live-stream interviews, exhibits, panel discussions, and more from the Creators Conferences.
