This annual photography program allows participants to learn about social issues impacting our city, while learning how to tell stories through photography. The program includes technical photography training and explores topics like poverty, vulnerable kids, and community building.

The Urban Exposure Project runs every Wednesday evening for two hours from Wednesday March 7, 2018 to Wednesday May 10, 2018. The final exhibit will take place in June.

Applications close Monday, February 26, 2018 at noon. All applicants will be contacted with further information by February 28, 2018.
