Filling a void created by the pandemic and exacerbated by educational inequities, the AMPLIFY workshop employed issue-based art education to encourage local high school students to explore personal, local, and global change through digital and hand-manipulated photography. With a focus on access to studio resources and instruction, the resulting installation of collaborative public art in the windows of the campus Art building offered a visible platform to amplify underrepresented youth perspectives.
