Local project to use selfies to redefine beauty
Starting next week, a new project will encourage girls to redefine their understanding of beauty and boost self-esteem, through Selfie. The workshop titled “The Art of the Selfie: How Selfies Create Confidence” is a collaboration between the Residential College in the Arts and Humanities, the 60/50 Project, and the East Lansing Public Library.
Current State’s Emanuele Berry speaks with Donna Kaplowitz of the residential college about the project. Kaplowitz explains that the project was inspired by a commercial suggesting that social media could be used to reinforce girls images of beauty, moving away from media stereotypes.
