ORGANIZATION BIO

We at Future Imagemakers are passionate about image-making. We believe in the power of photography as a means for self-expression, building self-confidence, and reflecting on our surroundings and lives. We strive to expand boundaries, open up possibilities, and learn from each other. And we embrace the Internet as a creative space with our website.

NYU Future Imagemakers is a participatory photography project at Tisch School of the Arts Department of Photography & Imaging and part of the Tisch Future Artist Program. Free digital photography classes are offered every spring, taught by NYU faculty and students to NYC area high school students. Applications for Spring 2018 are due November 27, 2018.
