The active involvement of community partners is critical to the success of the DCPS Arts mission and curriculum framework. If you’re interested in learning more about how to collaborate with the DCPS Arts Team, please join us for a behind the scenes look at the Everyday DC student photojournalism exhibition, which was collaboratively produced by the Pulitzer Center and seven middle school visual art programs throughout the District.

In addition to learning more about the Everyday DC Program and its alignment with key DCPS Arts initiatives, we’ll:  

  • Explore the elements of successful school partnerships with Fareed Mostoufi, Sr Education Manager for Education at the Pulitzer Center, and Kristy Esparza, DCPS Visual Arts Specialist;
  • Hear from photojournalist Allison Shelley about her experiences as a guest artist during the Everyday DC professional development workshops and classroom visits;
  • Work with Nathan Diamond, DCPS Director of Arts, to explore ways in which your work own might align with the new DCPS Arts Curriculum Framework and what to do if you’d like to partner with DCPS Arts in the future.

About the program: 
"Everyday DC," a student photojournalism exhibit organized by the Pulitzer Center in conjunction with District of Columbia Public Schoolsvisualizes daily life in Washington, DC, through the eyes of over 80 sixth, seventh, and eighth grade students from seven DC public middle schools that represent all four quadrants of the city. The exhibition, on view at the SW Arts Club through March 31, is a culmination of a photojournalism unit designed through a collaboration between the visual arts department at DCPS and the Pulitzer Center.
