ECHOES Exhibition Opening | Flint, MI

July 8 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm EDT

Free

ART WORKS Projects is honored to present ECHOES: Looking back on Flint amid COVID, a photographic collaboration between students of Youth News Movement, Report for America fellow KT Kanazawich, Flint Beat, and Emerging Lens 2020 Fellow Brittany Greeson.

Since 2014, residents of Flint have fought for their right to safe drinking water. The gross negligence of government systems, a failing infrastructure, decades of racial inequity and rising income inequality left the community exposed to lead poisoning. As the community’s battle to secure clean water continued, the City of Flint was then hit hard by the COVID-19 Pandemic. These compounded crises further exposed systemic inequities in communities nationwide and pushed Flint residents to be self-reliant as they had been amid the City’s ongoing water crisis.

ECHOES reflects on the City of Flint amid these layered challenges. The images explore themes of hope and despair, love and loss, and connection and separation during the global pandemic. They do not attempt to encapsulate a single experience but rather explore narrative threads connecting the complex perspectives of Flint’s community members amid such challenging moments in history. This project was produced as part of ART WORKS Projects’ Emerging Lens Fellowship Program.
