Momenta Workshop in NO, April 7-11

Momenta Workshops is coming to NO again, and looking for participants and volunteers to help “Project New Orleans With Chris Usher,” April 7-11, 2010.

Momenta Workshops staff and instructors work with each student to find a photo story that is close to their personal vision and embodies the theme of hope and recovery. Momenta will offer to connect photographers with nonprofit organizations we have worked with in the past. However, each photographer is encouraged to find their own photo story or charity of their choice, under the guidance of our team of instructors.

We will be working on the ground in the hardest hit areas of the region to create a narrative about the hurricane’s devastating impact. Student are encouraged to record audio for presentations. Multimedia instruction will be available for interested attendees. On the final night of the workshop, Momenta will host a slide show presentation for all the organizations who participated in the workshop as well as local residents and the workshop attendees.

NOPA members get a 20% discount on the workshop, and the coordinators are putting out a call for donations during the final slideshow reception to help raise a little money for the cause.

They need one volunteer especially to pass out promotional materials and fliers around town, and they’re offering a small stipend for the help.

Workshop fee: $1,329
