• Experience activism and community through the lens of photographers/artists, as they display their work from a free virtual 2020 workshop with acclaimed photographers and award-winning authors Karla and James Murray. In partnership with the East Village Community Coalition, James & Karla taught participants how to use photography/art and oral history to raise public awareness, build community, and encourage advocacy. Participants learned to create their own powerful photographs and artwork of neighborhood storefronts and to connect with the proprietors through personal interviews.
