APPLICATIONS open for Summer 2017
HIGH SCHOOL PROGRAM
Founded in 2014 in partnership with the United Nations International School, Picture Justice equips participants with the skills to address social injustices in their own communities through a combination of photography, storytelling, and human rights education.
The program fosters critical thinking and active citizenship, promotes compassion and empathy, and equips participants with the skills needed to be social justice advocates.
Participants work with professional photographers, journalists, and educators, to explore a human rights issue of their choosing, research, document, and create. They also meet with community leaders, lawyers, activists, and advocates working on reform. We will be photographing and taking testimonies from people who have lived experiences of the program topic.
Participants may produce online photo essays, recorded testimonials, and education resource toolkits. Regardless of the creative output, Picture Justice participants walk away with an invaluable set of research, artistic, and leadership skills.
