2015 #YMEJ exhibition incorporates an emphasis on multiliteracies, which has been at the center of our inquiries as we engaged with the lives of young people involved in the foster care and juvenile justice systems. Embedded in their institutional experiences are a range of other forces that have informed our own understandings about surveillance, justice, and education in these young people's lives, as well as the creative capacities that are brought forth when we create the conditions that allow their literacies and practices of possibility to ourish.
