Chris Glass wants to celebrate and advance intentional photography in Greater Cincinnati.
One component of his fellowship is a collaborative project called PhotoScouting. This program encourages everyone to exercise photographic principles, explore neighborhoods and connect with others while creating meaningful photographs.
A Guidebook organizes tasks in three categories: photography, neighborhood and people. Participants earn patches by completing tasks in each category. Photos submitted will be incorporated into a printed edition at the end of the fellowship and made available throughout communities.
Additionally, Chris is hosting photo walks throughout the area. These casual strolls highlight the character of our neighborhoods. Join us at our next event!
Brandon Black will use his Fellowship year to explore traditional apprenticeship in the age of technology. Brandon believes there are many people, namely elders, willing to share working knowledge and expertise to novice, able-bodied home rehab enthusiasts. Brandon will spend the next 12 months attempting to narrow the relational gap between Baby Boomers and Millennials, by connecting them through home repair projects that bring out the best in both generations. By the completion of his Fellowship, Brandon hopes to reimagine the role of elders, beautify neighborhoods and increase home values. Brandon sees this as an opportunity to develop a model that could incorporate other disciplines with intergenerational apprenticeship.
