• This photography, social media and oral history ONLINE workshop focuses on the cultural significance of neighborhood stores and the impact they have on the pulse, life, and texture of their communities. The ONLINE workshop will culminate in both an online @momandpopstorefronts dedicated Instagram page and a public exhibition of participants' work at a free public venue to be announced.
• The workshops teach how photography, social media, and oral history can be tools for public awareness and advocacy. Participants will learn to create their own powerful photographs of neighborhood storefronts as well as record oral histories with shop owners, which communicate artistically and are insightful and moving. Participants will also gain valuable knowledge in creating and maintaining their own social media account. Small local mom-and-pop shops including restaurants and cafes are the lifeblood of our communities and now more than ever need all of our support. Many have been struggling to survive during the Coronavirus pandemic shutdown, and highlighting their business via photography and oral histories is a great free way to help promote them and make sure they weather COVID-19.
• Space is limited to 50 participants per online workshop. The WORKSHOP IS FREE but advance registration is required so that we can send you a LINK VIA EMAIL to view the online workshop on our YouTube channel. Everyone who registers and participates in the first online workshop will receive another link to a second LIVESTREAM workshop session providing feedback on your work.
