Snap! Mobile Truck Gallery
Snap! is directed by Professors of Criminal Justice Benjamin Fisher and Heather Ouelette, Professor of Public Health
Aishia Brown and Professor of Photography Mary Carothers.
Snap! is a collaborative social change PhotoVoice project aimed at educating citizens and building advocacy for including student
voice in decisions about safety in public schools. A project team of university and high school students, local policymakers,
and professors are coming together to address shared concerns and guide the future trajectory of school safety toward a path
of shared decision-making and inclusiveness. Through a series of photography and writing workshops, students
will share their experiences in a way that will center their voices in local school and district-wide decisions. The students’
culminating photographic art will be showcased in a box truck that has been converted into both a gallery and functioning camera.
Watch for the mobile gallery to pop up in neighborhoods city-wide during the 2019 Louisville Photo Biennial.
