What Brings Us Together

“What Brings Us Together,” is a the culmination of bringing together six American Indian youth artists over ten consecutive Saturdays to develop their digital photography skills in a guided, supportive and culturally sensitive environment. Connected by the theme of “What Brings Us Together”, the process of each youth artist exploring their individual photographic eye creating a selection of photographs to represent their unique voice teaches the youth to be patient and decisive not only in their artwork, but also in their personal lives.
