Photography has a long tradition as a vehicle for social change and awareness of inequity. The introduction of service learning projects and experiential learning to the classroom gives students the opportunity to reflect upon their lives and how societal systems work and can disproportionately affect some individuals. The projects I have done in my class have allowed me to create an open dialogue about privilege, explore intersectionality of identities, and build a sense of community and belonging while taking responsibility in addressing our roles for breaking or perpetuating inequity cycles. This presentation will highlight collaborations between southern Colorado nonprofits and students at Adams State University.
