Here is one of many symbols that are brought to the altar to honor Our Lady of Guadalupe. This tradition happens on
December 12th. I have never participated in carrying the symbols, but would love to do it some year. A lot of people go to this celebration and I like going as well.
Since the establishment of the program in 1996 by Crealdé’s Executive Director Peter Schreyer, young artists from diverse
Central Florida communities have been introduced to storytelling through black and white photography, sharing their unique
vision of community, family, and place in history. Students learned to use professional 35mm cameras, allowing them to complete assignments and field trips to tell the story of their everyday lives. They developed their film and learned how to print their own photographs in Crealdé’s darkroom facilities. They gathered information about their subjects and worked with instructors to
develop picture ideas. In 2010, Storytellers had shifted to the use of digital-SLR cameras as well as computerized editing software. Over the course of the program, students can now learn digital shooting techniques, caption-writing, and photo-editing basics. Storytellers XIV is the second group to use the digital photography lab at Crealdé's Hannibal Square Heritage Center. The lab was established in 2009 thanks to a generous grant from the Community Foundation of Central Florida.
Throughout its existence, the Storytellers program has been funded by a wide range of private foundations and community partners, including the Orlando Magic Youth Foundation, the Ethel and W. George Kennedy Family Foundation, the Sentinel Santa Fund, and the Fanny Landwirth Family Foundation. Past community partners have included BETA Center, ESTEEM, the Tajiri School of Performing Arts and Academics; the Boys & Girls Club; the Winter Park Community Center; and the Office for Farmworker Ministry. Travelling exhibitions of Storytellers have been organized by Crealdé, touring Central Florida libraries and community centers, including a showing in the Supreme Court building at our state capital in Tallahassee. In addition, this project has been featured on two covers of Florida Magazine and was voted Best Arts Collaboration in 2000 by United Arts of Central Florida.
