and discussed in depth. We want to give people a chance to tell their stories and express themselves about topics relevant to them. A
significant goal of the group is to capture oral histories and document them so that they may not be forgotten. Whether to inspire change,
educate, or enlighten the masses, C.A.P.T.U.R.E.D produces real world issues from a universal standpoint. Encouraging shifts in perspective is a
huge objective with C.A.P.T.U.R.E.D., and in order to promote change, spreading awareness is essential. The art of non-fiction storytelling and
