STORYTELLERS 18: See Through Our Eyes

Location: Hannibal Square Heritage Center Gallery

An Exhibition Dedicated to BLACK LIVES MATTER
Virtual Opening Reception & Gallery Talk

Local Teens Document their historic African American community in DeLand through photography & oral history. 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, all of which are available to travel.
