Heroes of the Community – Introducing the “From a Space to a Place” follow-up program
As the school year is coming to an end, the TFAA team is gearing up for our summer “From a Space to a Place” programs. In fact, one of these programs – a follow-up with the teen Youth Council at Agape Development – is already off to a positive start!
The students have started to show interest in certain career paths and are honing their interview skills to gather real life success stories from members of the community who are involved in those fields. The teens are also learning about portraiture, and how to visually capture a person’s personality, with the help of one of FotoFest Literacy Through Photography’s wonderful teaching artists, Angie Dornier. Through this project, the students will highlight the “everyday heroes” of their community, documenting the engaging stories and photographs that they collect along the way to be publicly exhibited throughout the community at a later date.
Stay tuned for more updates on their exciting new project as well as our upcoming summer program in the Northside!
We are very excited to announce and share our newly created video and website featuring our signature “From a Space to a Place” program! Please visit www.fromaspacetoaplace.org to learn more!
This program is supported by the Texan-French Alliance for the Arts, Agape Development, SEHTA, and City Connections, which is funded in part by the City of Houston, CASE for Kids, and Harris County Department of Education.
