The photographic Everyday Africa project has inspired photojournalists all over the world to follow the Everyday model to fuel conversation and connections between seemingly disparate groups of people. Now Peter DiCampo—co-founder of Everyday Africa and Town Hall’s Inside/Out Resident representing the University District and Ravenna neighborhoods—convened a panel of Everyday project founders to discuss the changing world of journalism and the power of photography to reframe narratives about communities.

These photographers presented images from their Everyday projects and shared their inspiration for telling the stories of their community. They took us on a visual journey through the lives and realities in their Everyday, and then came together to examine what it means to create art that is truly collaborative. Join these diverse artists and activists united in the goal of creating social change through a showcase of the Everyday, and explore the power of photography to overcome media stereotypes and bridge social divides.
