You’re invited to a film screening of As We Bloom, a multimedia exhibition led by Asa Featherstone, IV, celebrating the transfer of information across generations and human connection and the challenging of perspectives.

RSVP to the As We Bloom Film Screening

Over the course of a seven-week residency, seven students learned the basic elements of storytelling, mobile/digital/film photography, filmmaking, and interviewed a collection of people within their community from different generations under the mentorship of Featherstone. The students created a collection of new works that become an abstract multimedia exhibition about freedom, justice, wonder, and coming of age through multiple eras. Featherstone guided production and shared work alongside the Youth Artists. As We Bloom is a part of the 2022 FotoFocus Biennial.
