Mosaic Mania!

Check out the new post by Project Coordinator Doris on the Triple Exposure website:

Triple Exposure mural students have truly stunned us with the beauty and originality of the mosaic murals which are now complete! The first mural, titled “Representations of Palestine” by the students, features olive trees, flowers, and butterflies to celebrate the beauty of the landscape around Nablus. This mural overlooks the TYO parking lot and thus brightens the day…

Our third mural, located on a central street in Nablus

“Triple Exposure” is a TYO initiative that aims to develop identity, awareness, and vocational skills among children and adolescents through teaching photographic expression and the production of public art.

Triple Exposure: Inspiration for mosaic murals

Check out the latest post by Project Coordinator Kelsey on the Triple Exposure blog:

For the spring session of Triple Exposure, I have decided to do a mosaic mural with my art classes, hopefully somewhere in the neighborhood. I have never done a mosaic mural before but I have seen how they can completely transform the neighborhoods they are done in. In Philadelphia, USA, there is a famous mosaic muralist named Isaiah Zagar who I have gotten a lot of inspiration from.

Announcing the launch of a TYO initiative blog, TripleExposure.net!

The “Triple Exposure” blog will chronicle the progress of the public art and photography project of the same name. The 2-year project aims to develops identity and awareness through photographic expression and public art, engaging children from our target areas.

By exploring TripleExposure.net, you can read more about the project, see photos of the children and their work, and learn the history and present situation of the incomparable city of Nablus.

TYO Launches Triple Exposure: An Exciting New Project!

We are pleased to announce the initiation of a new project at TYO: “Triple Exposure” will aim to develop identity and awareness through photographic expression and public art. Art and photography classes will be taught to children ages 7 to 16 from our target population.

Over the course of the next two years, the children will work with international and local staff and volunteers on mural painting and photography activities around TYO and Nablus. Throughout the project we aim to involve international and local artists, photographers, and journalists as trainers and mentors for the children.

The progress of classes, mural painting, and photo projects will be documented on a “Triple Exposure” blog. We will announce the launch of this blog in the coming weeks: stay posted for the announcement!
