Panel Discussion: Community Collaborations

Community-based art is a hyphenated field in which artists collaborate with people whose lives directly inform the subject matter to express collective meaning, help participants find their voice, and build community. Petruska Bazin, Leah Cohen, Katie Kline, and Lorie Novak (moderator) will discuss their experiences working in community-based and participatory photography projects.
Panelists: Petruska Bazin Larsen (The Laundromat Project), Katie Kline (ICP), Leah Cohen (Red Hook Justice Project), Lorie Novak (NYU) and teen photographers
