Nonprofit Storytelling

Join Momenta for our longest-running West Coast workshop at the beautiful Sony Digital Media Center.  During this workshop program, we research and find each student a different nonprofit or you can choose to find your own. Our nonprofit partners cover a range of issues from human rights, animal rescue, racial equity, job training, immigration, and homeless outreach. Today, the city is battling the impact of COVID-19, as is the rest of the world. Our nonprofit partners are working tirelessly to support their city and, next year, they will need us more than ever to help tell their story and get back on track for their fundraising and outreach needs.

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. The nonprofits benefit from your brilliant photos by using them to tell their story to the world and you will learn real-world skills on documenting humanitarian issues.

Our small group programs are personal and individualized. 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 end our week together with a huge public slideshow party on Friday night to celebrate you and 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 2021-2022, we will continue to follow city, state, and federal guidelines for safety protocols and working 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.
