Presented by

Lion’s Tooth Project

 

Thursday, September 19th | 4.30PM – 6PM

 

Join Lion’s Tooth Project youth on a panel discussion featuring their photographic work Reflex-tions,on an exploration of self through portraiture utilizing pinhole photography, mirrors, and creative writing.

In photography, mirrors direct light to create an image. What would it look like to dive into the looking glass in search of the stories and truths we hold within? Their work is the beginning of a beautiful photographic journey to collectively reflect on our own images and stories through time and space.

Moderated by Natalia Guerrero Founder & Director of Lion’s Tooth Project (LTP), Miyagi Scott and Daniel-José Cyan Peer Lead’s of LTP.

This panel is part of Photoville Education Day, and also part of the Youth Photo Summit which is open to the public.

PRESENTING ORGANIZATION BIO

Lion’s Tooth Project is a community-based organization inspiring youth to have more agency over their own wellness, healing, and personal stories through photography and earth medicine. We center and uplift the voices of LGBTQIA+, immigrant, Black/Indigenous, POC, and allied youth, to foster self-awareness, community building, and social change.

We believe in the healing power of community, story-telling, art and connection to the earth. Our programs explore these core components through our young herbalist and photography apprenticeships for young people aged 13-24.

We connect youth with organizations, educators, healers, elders, and artists in the community to build a network of practice that supports their life journey. Committed to the continuous learning and unlearning as space-holders, we offer training for educators seeking to create more inclusive and affirming spaces for youth.
