"The Bridge: Real World Mentorship For Emerging Photographers"
Artistic Discipline: Visual Arts
Category: Brooklyn Arts Fund
Grant Year: 2024
Location: Bushwick

Right now there are thousands of extraordinary young artists who have exciting new visions and stories to share with the world. Most people, especially groups that have been historically left out of the world of photography, are not born with time, money, or the connections to launch, cultivate, and sustain a career in the arts. We are here to bridge that gap. By building access to real-world tools, connections, and opportunities we strengthen not just the young creative entering the job market, but the health of the industry as a whole.
