Dreams, goals, creativity, and ideas function as immensely important forces in transforming lives. What each child chooses for his or herself −even if it is only as a dream for the future − is likely to influence many aspects of their lives, including the development of friendships and familial dynamics, careers, and personal growth. These dreams can be a force for meaningful socio-economic change in individual lives. Art becomes a vehicle for the voice of transformation. -—Rosa JH Berland, writer & curator from the foreword.

Overview

Art Start’s The Portrait Project offers homeless and court-involved New York City teens, who rarely have access to the arts, the opportunity to create empowering dreams of their future and show the world how they want to be seen. Through creative workshops and dialogue, participants explored personal identity and envisioned their lives without boundaries. With support from world-class photographers, those visions now come to life within an immersive installation and book. Representing a picture of inspiration and hope, The Portrait Project challenges the belief that the future simply will be a continuation of a difficult past. When given the freedom to imagine, the courage to believe and the resources to create, we profoundly transform how we interact with the world.
