Presented by

International Center of Photography

ICP’s Community Partnerships and Teen Academy together serve over 900 young people throughout the city each year by developing their knowledge of photography, critical thinking, writing and public speaking. Current students and alumni from these programs will share their images and writing, and reflect on the roles that photography plays in fostering self-confidence, community building and social change. Roy Baizan, ICP Community Programs alumnus and staff, will moderate the panel and facilitate discussion about individual and shared experiences in the Community Programs. Each panelist will share a portfolio of his/her images along with a prepared written piece to reflect ICP’s curricular focus. The panel will conclude with a dynamic discussion among the participants and the audience of youth photographers in an effort to engage in a greater dialogue about how photography can serve as a platform for youth to tell their own stories, build community and impact change.

ORGANIZATION BIO

The International Center of Photography (ICP) is the world’s leading institution dedicated to photography and visual culture. Through its exhibitions, school, public programs, and community outreach, ICP offers an open forum for dialogue about the role that photographs, videos and new media play in our society. ICP’s Community Partnerships and Teen Academy together serve over 900 young people throughout the city each year by developing their knowledge of photography, critical thinking, writing and public speaking. ICP’s offsite partnerships with community-based organizations reach students in underserved neighborhoods through free classes, and this same access is ensured by offering need-based scholarships to half of all students in onsite after-school classes. Community Partnerships include ICP at THE POINT, the High School of Fashion Industries, Friends of Island Academy, the Center for Alternative Sentencing and Employment Services (CASES), and Mount Sinai Adolescent Health Center. All programming reflects ICP’s commitment to social change through photography.

This panel is part of Photoville Education Day, and open only to participants of this program.
