The Capture Project
Check out work created by our students at Perkerson Elementary School here! --The Perkerson program was sponsored by and generous citizens like you!
WE MET OUR POWER2GIVE GOAL sponsored by the City of Atlanta's Bureau of Cultural Affairs.
HOWEVER, WE NEED YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT!
We want to expand our reach into specific, highly under served neighborhoods in Metro Atlanta by offering the Capture Project to schools, community centers and neighborhoods with very high concentrations of children living in low income situations who may also have disabilities or other developmental delays. We want to build new perspectives in communities that may struggle with outdated archetypes. We want to teach youth, who have embraced technology, to use it to affect change in their own neighborhoods, on their own terms.
Our team is poised to jump into projects that will teach the documentary arts, hands on, collaboratively and in real time with current equipment. After working with The Capture Project we will unleash the power of youth who have learned new forms of self-expression, how to explore different points-of-view and how to create a community that holds itself, and its elected officials accountable for what works and what does not. Students completing the program have, as a result of their own work, a tool that can be released, using social media and other viral distribution methods to spur change.
The Creatives Project, VSA Arts of Georgia, & YO Boulevard will launched and raised funds for the first year of their Capture Project collaboration in the O4W during a cocktail reception and meet & greet with TCP resident artists alongside a youth art display of works created during the pilot program"
