wrkxfmly is a multiweek assignment for high school photography students that expands the Showing (work x family) story to include unique and important perspectives of young people from diverse communities around the country.
Explore the Teacher Portal menu above to get detailed information about the assignment and access the wrkxfmly Toolkit classroom resources and activities.
In the assignment, students create pictures and write statements addressing the overlap of work and family in their own lives. We encourage students to think about broad definitions of family and work. The photographs they create are considered for inclusion in our wrkxfmly Archive and alongside professional work in the Showing exhibition.
The wrkxfmly assignment is supported with a lesson plan and a robust Toolkit with optional teacher and student resources. A trained Photo Facilitator from our team visits each school to introduce the assignment and returns to provide feedback on student work.
We are currently selecting schools to participate for the 2017–18 school year. We welcome high school photography classes at public and private schools, as well as independent photography programs.
