Idea behind project:
There is a student-led initiative on campus called Sustained Dialogue. This group brings students together from all ends of campus to meet weekly in small groups to discuss issues on Beloit College campus such as, race, gender, greek life, stereotypes, and personal identities. The initiative is built on a social justice framework, in an effort to reach solutions for these issues through dialogue. We wanted to use these photographs as a way to share the small group conversations with the rest of the campus community. By addressing barriers on campus through these portraits, we hope to foster dialogue about how we perpetuate various barriers on campus, and then how we can start to break them down on the individual and community level.
