The Everyday Project
Rating

Per their website, the mission of The Everyday Project is as follows:
"The Everyday Projects uses photography to challenge stereotypes that distort our understanding of the world. We are creating new generations of storytellers and audiences that recognize the need for multiple perspectives in portraying the cultures that define us."

The Everyday Project began as Everyday Africa, a collection of photographs and stories depicting life in Africa from different perspectives. The website as it is now is dedicated to using photography to combat inequality and perception.

This Project can be used in a variety of different ways in the classroom, and can definitely be a cross-curricular project. It encourages students to research and explore different areas or communities, especially their own. It promotes creativity and self-expression. Although the Project is primarily focused on photography, it can also open avenues for reading, research, and writing.
