THE STORY:

The MyNew Orleans Photo Project 2016 is designed to provide an opportunity for people affected by homelessness to share their perspectives through photography. Modeled after and partnered with Café Art, the group that runs the annual MyLondon photography contest, MyNew Orleans works with community partners that deliver services to those affected by homelessness to provide participants with basic photography training and cameras, so that they can gather images to show the city from their unique perspectives. An online gallery and gallery show on World Homeless Day together provide a valuable forum for the public to better understand the issues surrounding homelessness in New Orleans through experiencing the photographs. Following the Cafe Art template, we will work with 100 participants and print 1000 calendars which will raise funds for the project, with excess funds going to the community partners. Project funds will be used to purchase single-use cameras and film developing, printing services, frames/mats, gallery space for the culminating show, and the interactive online gallery for public viewing. In New Orleans, our partners currently include: St Jude Community Center, New Orleans Mission, Bridge House/Grace House, Hagar's House, and the Harry Tompson Center. Additional partners will be added as the project progresses. The project schedule is as follows: provide cameras and training in July, photo developing and selection in August, photo judging and online gallery in September, with the final gallery show in October to coincide with World Homeless Day on October 10.
