New Voices, SCPA students in collaboration with Joseph House residents, 2014

New Voices

Sep. 20, 2014 – Dec. 14, 2014
Tues–Sat:11 am–5 pm

New Voices is a series of photographic images and text revealing the stories of veterans in dependent situations. New Voices reveals excerpts from six graphic novels, the collaborative photography program between the School for Creative and Performing Arts (SCPA) and Joseph House. Students from SCPA and residents from Joseph House engaged in six photo shoots around the Joseph House in order to explore architectural and historic sites. SCPA students also recorded the residents' personal narratives and illustrated these narratives with photographs, giving literal and symbolic meaning to the personal journey of each resident in text and images.

Joseph House is an agency that serves veterans struggling with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), a debilitating condition that has led many returning veterans to homelessness and substance dependency related to their trauma. SCPA is a world-class public arts school where dedicated students prepare for a lifelong involvement in artistic and scholastic pursuits.
