Workshops and a Show

The mission of the OJOS: Eye of the Beholder project is to provide young artists a platform to amplify their sense of community connection through targeted networking, collecting resources, and leadership development. 


The program promotes inter-generational interaction between young artists and key community leaders in Reading to further increase their connection to broader public life.  

Participants receive a one hour workshop from an experienced photographer and go out on a guided shoot in the community. Then, they meet with the photographer to choose their best photos that is shown in a community reception.


To order prints: Please connect directly with the artist.
Don't know who the artist is? Don't worry, we'll connect you!
