Project Luz is a nomadic space to share, learn, and experiment using photography as a tool of empowerment for immigrant communities. Project Luz partners with community groups and organizations to facilitate encounters where participants learn and co-create images inspired by identity and life stories. At Project Luz, workshop participants explore their experience of the city, and present stories from their individual migrant perspectives.

Workers are engaged in art making and storytelling strategies under El Worker’s Studio project for several months. In these encounters, facilitated through artist Sol Aramendi, immigrant workers learn photography and produce new work. They share their life stories of resilience and immigration, and how their peers empower them to succeed. They discuss the value of their work and photograph their daily routine.
