“I HAVE A VOICE” RECORDS STORIES OF NEW YORK CITY THROUGH PHOTOGRAPHY

As the final two weeks of the I Have a Voice partnership with The Cartwheel Initiative came to a close, the students documented their new surroundings in New York City with digital photography. The group went on a photo walk in the neighborhood of their school and captured what intrigued them through the camera lens.

Some chose to photograph buildings and their detailed architecture, others focused on people they encountered and nature amidst the city blocks.  The students then used Adobe Voice, a mobile app on the iPad and added voice captions to some of the photographs describing why they were inspired to capture them.  Each student had a creative story to tell!

I Have a Voice will culminate Friday, Nov. 20 during CMA’s Young Artist Kollective Art Slam from 6:00 to 9:30 p.m. where CMA will celebrate Universal Children’s Day, a day established by the United Nations celebrating international togetherness and awareness among children. At 7:30 p.m., we will screen a collaborative film put together by the students during the program.
