Thank you so much to NYU's "Consult Your Community" chapter who recommended our @jamesandkarla Instagram account as a great resource for finding some of the amazing small businesses in NYC who need support now during COVID-19.
Also to take part in our FREE virtual workshop: https://youtu.be/92mw14ULXqo
CAPTURING THE FACES & VOICES OF MOM-AND-POP STOREFRONTS IN NEW YORK CITY is a 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.
• 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 COVID shutdown, and highlighting their business is a great free way to help promote them.
