Grades 1-5 Learners
Presented in partnership with the Saturday Kids' Club
The Museum of Street Culture with support from The Stewpot staff worked with the children in the Saturday Kids' Club to engage participants, grades 1-5, in a conversation about homelessness. Participants were able to view their works in an exhibition at the opening reception.
Picturing Homelessness challenged children to explore stereotypes and needs related to family, shelter, food, and pets through collaborative drawings made by small groups of children that were printed for installation on exterior windows of The Stewpot.
Grades 6-12 Learners
Photography and Social Justice
Presented in partnership with the Junior and Venturing Crew
The Museum of Street Culture with support from The Stewpot staff worked with middle and high school students involved in the Junior and Venturing Crews to engage participants in a conversation about homelessness and social justice. Participants will be able to view their works in an exhibition at the opening reception on April 14, 6-8pm in the panels above the parking garage adjacent to 1822 Young Street.
Photography and Social Justice challenged children to explore the neighborhood surrounding The Stewpot and the First Presbyterian Church of Dallas and discuss what they saw on the street, the indicators of homelessness, and how photographs can help make people more aware of issues related to social justice. The girls and boys took turns making photographs, and the length of time that each used one of the cameras varied. The resulting photographs were collaborative, expressing the inspiration and creativity of each of the children in different ways.
