Project New Orleans 2020

Working with Nonprofits

This workshop is our longest running and most popular program because New Orleans is a city unlike any other. The coming months will change the city in ways not seen since Hurricane Katrina. As we work side-by-side to help the local nonprofits in their recovery, this year’s workshop will be more powerful and more necessary than any we have ever seen before. Trust us when we say: your photography will never be more needed.

Momenta is deeply rooted in New Orleans. For every year since our founding, Momenta has been working with the incredibly dedicated nonprofit teams in the Crescent City. The nonprofits benefit from your brilliant photos by using them to tell their story to the world and you will learn real-world skills to documenting humanitarian issues.

You can be a force of change. On this inspirational workshop, you will be paired with a local nonprofit to create a powerful photo essay about their staff and all their efforts to fulfill their mission. You’ll also have a full day of educational lectures, hands-on instruction to help improve your technical skills, as well as daily one-on-one editing sessions. We will end our week together with a huge public slideshow party celebrating the amazing nonprofits from your projects!
