TRACE (Teens Re-imagining Art, Community & Environment) presents a series of workshops entitled Re-Imagining Each Other showcasing the power or photography and visual art to correct outsider narratives around communities of color. Facilitated by a group of dynamic TRACE Teaching Artist, each workshop asks attendees to bring images from there photo albums that feature the neighborhood in a positive light. Those images will be scanned and included in a photo exhibition curated by TRACE participants. Join photographer and westside community organizer Vanessa Stokes as she discusses preserving the archive of her father, Dorrell Creightney. Creightney, a prolific photographer who opened the first Black-owned photography studio in Chicago, passed in 2011 and left an amazing archive of images showcasing the beauty of Chicago?s west and southsides to his family. Stokes will discuss the importance of legacy, the process of conservation and the future of the archive as her family partners with TRACE for our spring programming at Austin Town Hall.
