About This Project

The world moves fast. Technology rules. Experience counts but so does knowing when to leap off with both feet and land squarely in the new, the risky and the wildly exciting.

This is a joint project between VSA arts of Georgia and The Creatives Project. It is designed to take advantage of everything that 40+ years in the Atlanta Community has taught AND everything that is new and different about a brand new organization. When these two organizations met, you could feel it in the air. SPARKS! It just fit. "We should work together!"

WHY WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT:

We want to expand our reach into specific, highly under served neighborhoods in Metro Atlanta by offering TCP’s Capture Project to schools, community centers and neighborhoods with very high concentrations of children living in low income situations who may also have disabilities or other developmental delays. We want to build new perspectives in communities that may struggle with outdated archetypes. We want to teach youth, who have embraced technology, to use it to affect change in their own neighborhoods, on their own terms.

Our volunteer staff of professional and emerging teaching artists are poised to jump into projects that will teach the documentary arts, hands on, collaboratively and in real time with current equipment. After working with The Capture Project, we will unleash the power of youth who have learned new forms of self-expression - how to explore different points-of-view and how to create a community that holds itself, and its elected officials accountable for what works and what does not. Students completing the program have, as a result of their own work, a tool that can be released, using social media and other viral distribution methods to spur change.

We have kids, we have teaching artists, we need CAMERAS (and stuff).

Your Donation will support the purchase of 2 Cannon DSLR Cameras, 2 Digital Voice Recorders and editing software to bring it all together.
