[ Upcoming Programs]  

The Other Side of the Curb
In partnership with BLACK Excel and the Annapolis Police Department
Annapolis, MD
Summer/Fall 2021

The Other Side of the Curb is being developed as a community response to the desire to build trust and relationships in our city. We're partnering with BLACK Excel leader Deonte Ward (a VW alum: https://www.blackexcelprogram.com/) on this program, pairing young people with Annapolis policemen and women as we use photography and writing to encourage understanding of each other’s story. APD officers will participate as fellow students alongside the young photographers.

Our goal is for all participants to learn each others’ stories, and to share them with our community. We will work together with our students to create a public exhibition which will highlight the groups' collaboration.
Narratio Workshops
In partnership with Narratio and Syracuse University
Syracuse, NY
July 2021

This program brings refugee and immigrant artists together with resettled refugee youth Fellows to explore their own experiences through artistic expression.

VisionWorkshops is partnering with Narratio to bring a storytelling workshop to youth in the Syracuse NY region. Photographers Amy Toensing (amytoensing.com), Matt Moyer (mattmoyerphoto.com), and an Artist in Residence (to be announced) will serve as mentors for the project, as they guide the Narratio Fellows to share their stories and to connect with one another through photography and writing.

The program will culminate in a traveling photography exhibit.
Envisioning Your Future
In partnership with the Good Shepherd Agricultural Mission and Teach Her
Banbasa, India
Fall 2021 or Winter 2022

VisionWorkshops is planning a storytelling workshop for youth who are part of the GSAM family in Banbasa, India. Photographers and writers Sara Hylton, Clifton Shipway, John Marshall and Kirsten Elstner will be working with a group of young people who call "the farm" home, encouraging them to share their stories and create their own futures.

This program is a partnership with Teach Her and our longtime partner, the Good Shepherd Agricultural Mission.

As with all of our programs, we'll work collaboratively with our staff and students to amplify the voices and stories of our participants.


Your donation will support these programs for youth.
