|About||The images we see, shape the individual we will be...Knowing that, we created a photography program to inspire and enrich the lives of children in Detroit.|
Capturing Belief is a workshop that teaches students photography and helps them recognize the power of visual storytelling. We live in a world shaped by images and believe that individuals have the power to steer conversations, break stereotypes and influence decision making and thinking through their photography. We encourage children to use photography as a tool to discover their own environment and travel beyond it to see and experience the diversity of the world and cultures.
We help students shift their focus away from the negative influences imposed upon them and towards what is positive and possible. We nurture their curiosity and help empower them to tell their own stories and portray themselves the way they want to be seen.
We put them in contact with children from other countries so that they are able to exchange their written and visual narratives, and in the process, learn about different cultures and make new friends.
Our first session- from November 2016 through January 2017, involves children from Detroit, USA and Nairobi, Kenya.
