Faces of the Movement is a daily-release photo project that highlights the stories of everyday people who have joined together to fight for justice against police brutality in the United States.
Faces of the Movement responds to the social unrest and array of issues that arose following the shooting death of Michael Brown, a teenager in Ferguson, MO. As activists, protestors, and community members suffered trauma from online trolling, media marring, on-going physical threats by local police, Faces of the Movement provided a creative platform that highlights and celebrates the stories and beauty of the many people who continue the pursuit of justice within the Ferguson and great St. Louis communities.
Charles Wade, organizer and Director of Operation Help or Hush, serves as the creator and curator of the project. Attilio D'Agnostino photographs all of the portraits featured in the on-going body of work. De Andrea Nichols, Creative Director of Civic Creatives, serves as the web designer, branding and graphics developer, and social media manager for the project.
Faces of the Movement will continue until August 9, 2015, the one year marker of the shooting death of teenager, Michael Brown, in Ferguson, MO.

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
