In 2011, as part of iaedp’s Body Image Awareness Project and an effort to educate through art and conversation, iaedp created the “Imagine Me Beyond What You See” Travel Exhibition, which displays and describes 18x24 mounted posters of 2012 mannequin entries.
iaedp also created an “Imagine Me Beyond What You See” Short Film which narrates the stories behind the 2012 mannequin entries and artists. This film is designed for middle to high school and college counselors as well as youth organizations. There are questions at the end to assist in open-ended dialogue and eating disorders education. Our goal is to listen and lead within the field of eating disorders and the communities we serve.
