Assemblage Series:Art Installation Walking Tour

Assemblage Temporary Photographic Art Installation Fundraiser

For the last two years, Shelby Wormley of WE&Company and Richard Craighead, the founder of Inclusive Arts Movement York partnered together to document and  promote black togetherness and positive propaganda in the York Community. 49318846_1593698240795573_r.jpegas·sem·blage:

 Assemblage, is a series of photographic group and individual portraits
that challenges negative stereotypes of black and brown people of color.  The internalization of negative portrayals by others is harmful, and these photographs are meant to counter that and instead empower Black men and women by representing their strength, resilience and unity. These images reveal their subjects as they see themselves, not as they've been portrayed by those who know little to nothing at all about them. The series demonstrates unity, while also highlighting variety - of style and posture, of age, of skin tone, etc. The images communicate that each person is an individual, but as individuals they are standing together. The images are both assertive and welcoming; while telling the viewer that this is our neighborhood, we are the authors of our own story, but you are welcome to join us, learn about us, and enjoy our neighborhood. 

 “We're more than what were perceived to be.  However, if you happen to see us all the same. See us now in such prestige.” - Richard Craighead. 

Three photo shoots and a few galleries later, the vision came to fruition.


We would like to bring this Exhibit into the community, to give everyone a chance to not only see the images with their own eyes but to promote positive images of black and brown people in high esteem;while creating a safe space for people to engage in dialogue.

We've had the images featured in galleries across York City, now we want to bring the Assemblage Exhibit to you.
