Product Description

There is no better example of the inspirational saying, “If you can see it, you can be it,” than in the grassroots efforts of the community-based arts program Newburgh Community Photo Project (NCPP). Founded in 2017 by photographer, educator, and community activist Vincent Cianni, NCPP teaches photography and related media to an underserved population of Newburgh youth, with a goal to explore critical social justice issues directly related to participants’ lives and community.

In our second story on notable youth photo programs, Cianni elaborates on NCPP’s mission to cultivate role models who look like the population it serves. Read on to discover how the organization’s effective mix of workshops, mentorships, gallery exhibitions, public art actions, and other community events, help to raise awareness and engage the public at large, while simultaneously laying a solid foundation for program participants.
