N4th Outreach Programs
Candid Communities brings the arts into community engagement and organizing. Working with schools and community organizations, the program uses photography as a tool to empower community members to engage in collaborative leadership with the organizations that serve their neighborhoods. Community members learn the basics of how to use photography as a visual storytelling tool. Using that knowledge, they respond to photo prompts to showcase both what they believe is strong about their community and what is missing. In June 2022, Candid Community program worked with four community schools across Albuquerque, culminating in a multi-community exhibition at the N4 Gallery.
