The Power of Pink

The Lower Eastside Girls Club has cultivated a sisterhood of like-minded photography programs around the country. Programs where seemingly marginalized youth acquire professional skills, explore meaning through the lens, and establish themselves as voices of their generation and communities. And so- why not?

The Lower Eastside Girls Club

The Lower Eastside Girls Club has cultivated a sisterhood of like-minded photography programs around the country. Programs where seemingly marginalized youth acquire professional skills, explore meaning through the lens, and establish themselves as voices of their generation and communities. And so- why not? We sent the Pink Gowns their way, and they accepted the creative challenge! In this photography series we are excited to share the work of the young women photographers from Club Balam in Chiapas, Mexico, Las Fotos Project in Los Angeles, California, A VOICE-(Art Vision & Outreach In Community Education) from the Two Eagle River School on the Flathead Reservation in Montana, and work from our own photography program. We will be joined by several of these talented photographers to discuss their work and the impact of the project.

This panel is part of Photoville Education Day, and open only to participants of this program. To learn more and register, please go here.
