Critical Exposure

Nonprofit or community organization

Last modified: January 8, 2014, 4:07 PM

Description

Critical Exposure teaches youth how to use the power of photography and their own voices to become effective advocates for school reform and social change. Through partnerships with youth programs and advocacy organizations, we seek to create a connection between art and advocacy using a three-pronged approach that focuses on:

1. Youth Empowerment – Provide students with training in documentary photography, leadership, and advocacy; teach them how to document issues that impact their lives; and help them to use their images and voices to advocate for positive solutions to those issues.

2. Public Engagement – Inform and engage the public by using students' photographs and writing to create traveling exhibits that can be shown in galleries, libraries, coffee shops, and other public spaces to increase awareness of the issues facing young people.

3. Policy Change – Partner with advocacy and community organizations to implement creative strategies that use youth photography and voices to strengthen campaigns to improve our schools and our communities.
