Everyday DC

Each year since 2017, the Pulitzer Center looks forward to the annual Everyday DC photography exhibition at the Pepco Edison Place Gallery in Washington, D.C. The exhibition is the culmination of a visual arts curriculum co-written by the Pulitzer Center and District of Columbia Public Schools (DCPS) that asks middle school students across the District to think about media representation and stereotyping — of faraway places and of their own city — and then to use photojournalism skills to share images that more accurately represent their everyday lives in the District. It is inspired by the Everyday Africa project, which was created by Center grantees Peter DiCampo and Austin Merrill.
