Founded in 2009 by Ms. Tiffiney Davis, Red Hook Art Project (RHAP) is a non-profit organization that provides free visual art, music, academic and stress management instruction to children and youth who live in and around Red Hook, Brooklyn. RHAP organizes our community of 30 volunteers—artists, musicians, writers, doctors and other practitioners—to teach and mentor our students on a weekly basis. Our pedagogical approach is rooted in responding to our students’ interests and needs with special attention to activities that build self-confidence and problem solving skills.

Two blocks from the largest NYCHA development in Brooklyn, RHAP is positioned to serve economically and geographically underserved youth—ensuring accessibility to those who may face barriers to accessing arts programming.

At the core of our mission is the empowerment of youth through the arts. Our classes aim to cultivate a sense of artistic identity and leadership among the next generation, with small class sizes. The curriculum encompasses various art forms, including drawing, painting, mixed media, ceramics, and music, providing students with opportunities to explore new mediums and develop their artistic skills. With a steadfast commitment to fostering inclusivity and representation, RHAP amplifies the voices of community members in shaping programming and decision-making processes.

    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.
