When the camera is put in their hands,
and intergenerational connections are made,
the results are powerful and lasting.
STORYTELLERS 18 was originally unveiled in the Fall
of 2019 at the African American Museum of the Arts
in DeLand — as all STORYTELLERS projects are first
shown in their home town.
Now on display at the Hannibal Square Heritage Center
in Winter Park, this opening event includes a gallery
talk by project creator and instructor Peter Schreyer,
and an opportunity to meet some of the Storytellers,
project partners, and supporting Fellowship Artists at
the Hannibal Square Heritage Center.
Since 1996, the CREALDÉ STORYTELLERS TEEN
DOCUMENTARY PHOTOGRAPHY PROGRAM has
given photography instruction to students ages 13–17,
providing the opportunity for self-expression while
exploring the heritage of their community. From
Orlando’s downtown urban Parramore neighborhood
to suburban Sanford and Apopka to rural Geneva
and coastal New Smyrna, teens from around Central
Florida have completed 18 photographic documentary
exhibitions to date. Storytellers 17 and 18 projects were completed in Volusia County, and the finished exhibition is available to travel to museums, galleries and community centers.
