Day 1 of the Newcomers documentary arts program in San Antonio.
They are working with 50 young refugees from Iraq, Somalia, Tanzania, Sudan, Kenya, Thailand, Burma, and Nepal.

The project's mission is to use creative mediums such as photography and creative writing as a means to add the personal, familial and cultural stories and perspectives of these young students to the collective archive of American life.
This is an initiative started by Jason Reed in association with Texas State and Artpace.
See their blog.
