Capture AT PERKERSON
The CAPTURE Project, TCP's signature outreach program, is an arts and technology workshop focused on visual storytelling and social connectedness via the documentary arts.
The CAPTURE Project empowers youth in Atlanta’s most impoverished neighborhoods to document and share their stories of community through personal interviews and intimate photography. The results are shared with residents and businesses to cultivate a stronger sense of community and connection.
In 2013 TCP piloted the Capture Project with the youth of Big Bethel AME Church and Perkerson Elementary school. Please check out behind the scenes images from our time with these young talents below and email us for more information about our program! Our work with Perkerson was generously supported by TARGET and local residents.
TCP created arts education programming around the development of a mural for the youth and staff of Perkerson Elementary School. Resident artists MAO and Brandon Sadler worked closely with students to conceptualize, design, and install a large scale mural in the entry area of the school to help create a colorful, inspiring, and inviting atmosphere for students teachers, faculty, staff, and visitors.
