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

The Other Side of the Curb was developed as a community response to the desire to build trust and relationships in our city. We partnered 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 was for all participants to learn each others’ stories, and to share them with our community. We worked together with our students to create a public exhibition which  highlighted the groups' collaboration.

Narratio Workshops
In partnership with Narratio and Syracuse University
Syracuse, NY

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

VisionWorkshops partnered with Narratio to bring a storytelling workshop to youth in the Syracuse NY region. Photographers Amy Toensing (amytoensing.com), Matt Moyer (mattmoyerphoto.com), and a Narratio Artist-in-Residence served as mentors for the project, guiding the Narratio Fellows as they shared their stories and connected with one another through photography and writing.

The program culminated in an exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
