Photo Stories For 5 New Immigrant Communities
Our ongoing immigrant community awareness and education program, called the Cultural Fabric of Philadelphia, is now (2018) starting a new photo book for 5 new communities; Mexican, Ukrainian, Indian, Haitian, Jamaican. This work will be done within the 12 months of 2018, in order to catch all of the important festivals and events for these communities. And we’ve gotten some really expert, committed and engaged community leaders to help us with this work. See the list below.
If anyone reading this is either a member of these immigrant communities, or knows members, please pass along my request for them to reach out to me if they have anything that they would like to offer us to consider for the community photo stories.
