Seeing your potential through digital media

PAL Project

Photography and Literacy Project (PAL Project) is an innovative program positioned under Syracuse University's Coalition of Museum and Art Centers (CMAC), that brings SU students into Syracuse City Schools to develop projects involving photography, video, audio recording and writing. The objective is to improve student’s writing and reading skills by linking these studies with photography, video and poetry. Using “Visual Thinking Strategies,” PAL Project also improves student’s critical thinking and media literacy skills. PAL Project provides students with an opportunity for expression through both a visual and narrative connection by linking the forms of digital media and writing. In connecting image making with writing and critical thinking, PAL Project promotes an expansive use of digital media and creative writing across curricula and disciplines. PAL Project truly defines the meaning of Scholarship in Action. It exemplifies collaboration among university departments including Light Work, the College of Visual and Performing Arts, the School of Education, and the Coalition of Museum and Art Centers. Through PAL these University departments in turn collaborate with the Syracuse City School District to work with teachers and students on a sustained basis to teach them 21st century life skills.

The Photography and Literacy Project is an innovative program positioned under Syracuse University’s Coalition of Museums and Art Centers (CMAC) that brings SU students into Syracuse City Schools to develop projects involving photography, video, audio recording, and writing. The objective is to improve students’ writing and reading skills by linking these studies with photography, video, and poetry.

“If I can make one kid or any number of them feel they’re capable, intelligent, creative, and have something substantial to add to the conversation in class, then that’s rewarding to me,” says Stephen Mahan, Director of SU’s Photography and Literacy Project.

This exhibition features work by children selected from five groups that the PAL Project worked with over a nine week period: Hillside Work-Scholarship Connection, middle and high school students; North Side Leaning Center, middle and high school students; Edward Smith School, self-contained classroom, 4th, 5th, and 6th grade students; Edward Smith School, 5th grade students; and Say Yes to Education.

Seen and Heard PAL Project is on view through August 6, 2017. The main Summer exhibition, Seen and Heard is on view through August 27, 2017.

All students with featured work received a FREE Household Membership to the Everson Museum of Art for a year.

We wish to extend sincere gratitude and thanks to Joy of Giving Something Inc. for their continued support.

Joy of Giving Something Arts Education Initiatives

The ability to understand and interpret images is an essential skill for basic communication and comprehension. Access to visual arts learning should be a fundamental part of every child’s education, yet funding for the arts remains woefully inadequate in schools nationwide. Joy of Giving Something is committed to the ideal of universal access to visual literacy and arts education.

Our grantmaking is comprised of three initiatives: scholarships, expansion grants, and support for afterschool programming.

Since 2009, we have awarded more than fifty scholarships to students pursuing a post-secondary education in visual arts. Scholarships are made through partner organizations such as Appalshop, Imagining America, International Center of Photography, Perpich Center for Arts Education, and The Studio Museum in Harlem.

As a means of supporting and expanding high-quality visual arts learning, grants for the purchase of photographic equipment and software are made to select educational institutions. Recipients have included the Urban Assembly School for Wildlife (Bronx); Community Darkroom (Rochester); PAL Program (Syracuse); Lower Manhattan Community School (NYC); Mark Twain School IS239 (Brooklyn); Van Siclen Community Middle School (Brooklyn); and Boys Club of New York.
