The Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting occurred ten years ago today on December 14, 2012, in Newtown, Connecticut.
Ten student survivors participate in the Prtrait Process—to mark the 10th anniversary of the Sandy Hook shooting. The Dear World Foundation gave ten student survivors of the Sandy Hook shooting a camera, a set of questions, and a challenge.
Facilitated by Dear World founder Robert X Fogarty, pairs of young adults who survived the Sandy Hook shooting explored their shared experience through the Prtrait Process by Dear World.
During the Prtrait Process:
- Students began with a self-portrait sketch exercise, asking themselves and each other, “How do I hope people see me?”
- We gave them cameras in a professional studio setting and they photographed each other.
- Then they interviewed each other with pre-selected introspective questions.
The Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting occurred on December 14, 2012, in Newtown, Connecticut, United States, when 20-year-old Adam Lanza shot and killed 26 people. Twenty of the victims were children between six and seven years old, and the other six were adult staff members. Earlier that day, before driving to the school, Lanza shot and killed his mother at their Newtown home. As first responders arrived at the school, Lanza died by suicide by shooting himself in the head. – (Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting – Wikipedia)
