New Visions: Media, Photography, and Community Building
New Visions: Media, Photography, and Community Building is a collaboration between En Foco, and the New Settlement Apartments Young Adult Opportunity Initiative program. The exhibition features the works made by the participants in the program, after 5 sessions focused on portable media, culture, and community building. New Visions is a public program supporting En Foco’s community exhibition program, the Apartment Gallery Series.
The above exhibition is a sample of the work produced during the 12 week program, and highlights the incredible effort made by the young artists. New Visions provides the opportunity for the participants to learn practical applications of media techniques, through the lens of community building, healing, and self-care.
This exhibition is supported in part by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council, New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, Ford Foundation, The Lily Auchincloss Foundation, Joy of Giving Something, Inc., and private contributions. Special thank You to New Settlement Apartments, Pepon Osorio and BronxNet for supporting this collaboration. Member of the Urban Arts Cooperative.
