Project NYC 2022

Photographing Nonprofits

Momenta is finally coming to New York City by popular demand (and we really mean that…you folks were really adamant about asking for this workshop location!). We are so pleased to join the amazing nonprofit movement happening in this vibrant metropolis when the city will need our help the most.

New York City has more than 90,000 nonprofits and they need their stories told in order to survive. The city and surrounding areas are simply bursting with nonprofit story potential and they have been working tirelessly this year to support their fellow citizen survive this rough year. 

Your photo story can help support the millions of people who rely on these nonprofit services and help them gain awareness for their incredible efforts. Your photography will document the truly amazing work being done every day in programs such as health care support, homeless outreach, drug addiction outreach and prevention, young artists programs, immigration services, animal rescue, racial equity, and much more. 

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!

COVID-19 NOTICE: The safety of our students and staff on the ground is paramount to us and we take it very seriously. With the situation changing so quickly, we want to ensure, when we all gather in person to support the nonprofits who desperately need us, it is the best environment for your learning and creativity as well as safety.

As we prepare for all our workshops in 2022, we will continue to follow city, state, and federal guidelines for safety protocols and work with our advisors to ensure every precaution possible is made. In addition to the usual safety preparations and PPE we use on our programs, we will also be implementing stringent personal and group hygiene protocols during all workshops.

Since our programs are limited to small groups and are first come-first serve, we recommend putting your deposit in for the workshop program to hold your place. If you decide you’d like to transfer to another workshop in the future, we are waiving all transfer fees through January 2022 to allow you to feel most comfortable with your decision to travel with us.
