The Beautiful. Project

The Beautiful. Project is a photographic exhibit featuring a variety of photos from young girls affiliated with the project showcasing the activity of participants and statements about their experiences during the program.

The Beautiful. Project is a program that uses photography and creative workshops to help black girls and young women investigate and celebrate how they define beauty and how beauty is defined for them. The program accepts a number of participants each year and includes a photo process (interviews, photo shoots focused on the little girls and their families, conducted by the undergraduate women), Saturday Studios (bi-weekly fun creative workshops for 9-12 year old girls to further investigate their definition of beauty), and a Health & Wellness track (professional and personal development workshops for undergraduate Black women participants).
