Critical Exposure taught us to take pictures of our everyday lives so we can get in touch with people who do not understand what is going on in the DC public schools.
This Spring, Critical Exposure worked with a group of 10 middle-school scholars at the Ward 1 Higher Achievment Program center. The scholars engaged with their unique artistic perspectives around what it means to be a HAP scholar. We explored the schedule of their time at HAP, such as time spent with mentors and time alloted for them to "just be kids" and play in the park. We also documented the many roles and responsibilites they fill as young people in an academic after-school program. The project culminated in a presentation of their words and photos to the entire Ward 1 staff, parents, all the scholars, and many of the mentors. In addition, an exhibit of their best work will be shown at the Higher Achievement Green Apple Graduation in May.
