Southport High School is one of the most progressive school environments within the state of Indiana. Roughly 15% of our student population are Burmese refugees, alongside South-Africans, Iranians, Bulgarians, and South-Americans. These are but a few of the nationalities housed within our world-cultured walls; to list them all would simply be too long.
The goal of this project is to:
Raise awareness about our world cultures
Highlight the emotion and types of people experienced in a high school environment
Positively illustrate the equality of all persons
And show the true beauty of our diversities.
In this limelight Indiana is finding itself in over the Religious Freedom Preservation Act, and the tempers flaring accordingly, the community at Southport decided now was the time to bring about a message focused not on anger but on unity and equality.
The Southport Auditorium will be gaining 32 black and white prints directly above the doors to enter our Theatre. This way, be it a choir concert, an athletic awards ceremony, or a township staff meeting - The entire South-Side community will be exposed to this wonderful and impactful work of art.
This project was made possible by Southport High School's Theatre Director Barb Whitlock, Senior Jake Rose, Principle Barb Brouwer, and Superintendent of Perry Township Schools Dr. Thomas Little.
