Community Heroes is a community organizing and public art project celebrating the everyday heroes of our neighborhoods.

Local artists, youth, and community members come together to celebrate those dedicated to strengthening and supporting Fort Greene, focusing on long-term historic residents. This is an ongoing annual collaboration with the Fort Greene Park Conservancy and Friends of Commodore Barry Park.

You are invited to nominate your neighborhood hero or collaborate as a storyteller.


  • Photoville


    Founded in 2011 in Brooklyn, NY, Photoville was built on the principles of addressing cultural equity and inclusion, which we are always striving for, by ensuring that the artists we exhibit are diverse in gender, class, and race.

    In pursuit of its mission, Photoville produces an annual, city-wide open air photography festival in New York City, a wide range of free educational community initiatives, and a nationwide program of public art exhibitions.

    By activating public spaces, amplifying visual storytellers, and creating unique and highly innovative exhibition and programming environments, we join the cause of nurturing a new lens of representation.

    Through creative partnerships with festivals, city agencies, and other nonprofit organizations, Photoville offers visual storytellers, educators, and students financial support, mentorship, and promotional & production resources, on a range of exhibition opportunities.
