FotoFest’s annual FotoFence exhibition kicks off this Sunday, May 17, from 2:00 – 4:00 p.m. and will feature readings by student writers who participated in their Literacy Through Photography (LTP) program. WITS partnered with LTP to provide creative writing/photography classes at Herod Elementary School and Lanier Middle School this year.
FotoFence offers elementary, middle, and high school students the opportunity to professionally display their writing and photography to fellow students, teachers, families, school officials and the general public. The exhibition will feature over 500 student posters and essays from the 2008-2009 school year. Students’ stories and photographs address experiences in their own lives, their communities, their families and dreams as well as social issues, such as climate change, animal rights and teen pregnancy. The exhibit is being shown at the FotoFest Gallery in downtown Houston from May 17 through May 30. Admission and parking are free. Visit LTP’s website for more details.
