ABOUT THE PROGRAM:
The Capture Project is a technology-based education program with a focus on language arts enrichment and social responsibility via the documentary arts. Participants will experience a one day portrait photography workshop to learn the fundamentals of storytelling through portrait photography. The program will be customized to provide youth with tools they’ll need to capture the personal stories and intimate portraits of individuals they meet in their community.

Each youth will be paired with a TCP artist mentor as they embark on a portrait scavenger hunt at participating
businesses along the street car path. Each team will engage community members through interviews and photography. The experience will be documented online and will culminate with a final exhibition of portraits and stories captured by each youth participant.
