Partnering with Critical Exposure allowed us to further develop the creative skills of the students and utilize those skills to provide greater context to the issues.
Weed and Seed students discussed many issues that affect them both directly and indirectly within the Columbia Heights and Shaw neighborhoods. They used the skills they learned in the Critical Exposure class to document these issues. Many of their photos depict the inability of uprising developments to provide an environment for original inhabitants of the area. Gentrification, slum landlords, and homelesness are issues that pressed Weed and Seed students. This class will conclude with an exhibit of the students photos in the Columbia Heights neighborhood.
