Marti Corn and Rebecca Hopp (T&L)
Friday, March 02 - 11:00AM to 11:45AM
Grand Ballroom Salon G
In September 2016, former Literacy Through Photography (LTP) Program Manager Rebecca J. Hopp and documentary photographer and educator Marti Corn traveled to Kakuma, a refugee camp in Kenya, with the intention of empowering young people by giving them the tools to share their own stories through photography and the written word. Corn and Hopp will describe their experiences in Kakuma and then explain how those students' stories were shared in Houston classrooms, bridging communities and strengthening their sense of identity. They'll share their project lessons, goals, outcomes, and plans for continued projects.
