Photo Challenge: A Shared Elegy 
What’s your definition of family? Your challenge is to record the present moment with your family, whatever that means to you. This could be family members, friends, pets, or any other definition you provide. Borrow an instant camera from us or use your phone and our instant photo printer. Record and share your family’s experience. Together your photos, taken 5-7:30pm, will create a story about family and the shared experience of this campus arts festival. Grab a photo prompt or photograph what inspires you, then add your photo to the display. We'll have 2 instant cameras circulating so photographs can be taken from start to finish.
