Virtual Exhibition—What We Hold: A Youth Audio Project

The teen years are instrumental in the creation of a sense of self. They are also a critical time in the creation of what psychologists from The Family Narrative Lab at Emory University call the "intergenerational self"--a self embedded in a larger familial history.

What shapes us? Which family histories become our core stories? How do we make them our own? In the fourth iteration of What We Hold, teens ranging in age from fifteen to eighteen years old have created individual audio recordings reflecting on and connecting with their families' stories of migration, resilience, acceptance, identity, and passion.

This year during the COVID-19 pandemic, teens from across the nation met with media professionals and artists via Zoom, interviewed family members remotely and in person, and recorded their stories. Each recording represents a connection made during this time of distance. Mitigating this historic period of physical separation between generations, this project helps bridge that divide and captures how teens and their families experienced this unique time in their lives.

This exhibition will be presented exclusively online.
