Teaching Photography & Advocacy to D.C. Youth



Critical Exposure will provide digital cameras and training to 125 youth in Washington, DC. Help empower students to use their photography and voices to build public support for social change.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Critical Exposure addresses two needs: (1) the need to provide low-income students with training and opportunities for artistic expression and participation in the public policymaking process, and (2) the need to ensure that youth voices are part of conversations about school reform efforts.

How will this project solve this problem?

We pursue our mission with a three-pronged strategy: Youth Empowerment (train youth in photography, leadership, and advocacy) Public Engagement (community viewings/exhibitions) Policy Change (help youth influence school reform through photos)

Potential Long Term Impact

Develop capacity of youth orgs to provide art/advocacy training to their youth. Increase willingness/ability of adult orgs to incorporate voices/talents of youth. Ensure that the DC adopts and begin implement policies identified by youth.
