News & Events
Shooting Beauty received a generous grant from the Fledgling Fund to support three, day long launch events for the Shooting Beauty Girl Scouts Patch Program. The overarching goal of the patch program is to use the film, Shooting Beauty, and the Shooting Beauty Patch Program book which was co-created by Courtney Bent, Bethany Stark and Andrea LaVant, Inclusion Specialist for the Girl Scouts Council of the Nation’s Capital, to empower girls to embrace their individuality which we believe is an essential component for becoming stronger leaders as well stronger advocates for a more inclusive society. The day long events included a screening of Shooting Beauty, activities that challanged girls' concepts of beauty as well as booths from local orgainzations that serve individuals with disabilities. To date over 1,000 Girl Scouts have earned their Shooting Beauty Patch and we can't wait to see how many more do!!
Courtney travelled to Houston to be part of the ReelAbilities Houston Film Festival and to conduct a Shooting Beauty Workshop at the Celebration Company, an organization that provides individuals with disability an entry into the workplace. Shooting Beauty and the photographs from the workshop were featured closing night of the festival at the Museum of Fine Arts. Courtney and her nine photographers were followed for the day by a writer and photographer from the Houston Chronicle. Congratulations to all our new Shooting Beauty photographers!
