MOMENTA WORKSHOPS

I've been wanting to be apart of a workshop with Momenta Workshops since college. I could never afford to take time off from school or work and I didn't have money to travel to the super cool places the workshops were in. It was on my list of things to plan for when I moved to San Francisco. I thought that going to one in New Orleans would be amazing or to go abroad. It was on the back burner as I was still in my first 6 months of SF living, but then I got an email that they were coming to San Francisco!

Even though it was in my own city, I still had to take off work for the week and had just moved (one of many apartments I've lived in) so overall not a great time but I wasn't going to pass up the opportunity. I applied for a scholarship (which I really didn't think I would get) and it was the reason I was able to be apart of the workshop. Momenta Workshops pairs you up with a nonprofit and helps explain how to work with them. It was the best workshop I've ever attended and can't wait to go be apart of another.

Jamestown, a Mission District based organization, envisions a future where all of San Francisco’s children, youth, and families, particularly those from underserved populations, will have access to the opportunities they need to thrive and to create a city that is safe, equitable, interconnected, and community-led.

I was paired with Jamestown Community Center. I spent my time photographing kids playing, learning and building after school. If you've been following along, you know how excited I was to get paired with a nonprofit that deals with kids! It was such a blast to be able to learn so much about working with nonprofits, how to work with kids in a way where they can act natural in front of the camera instead of being too interested in what I'm doing and to have a party at the end of the week where our images were shared with the other people in the workshop and the nonprofits they worked with. I can't thank Momenta for one of the best weeks of my life and I truly can't recommend this workshop enough. Counting down the days until I attend my next one, but for now please enjoy some of the images I captured for Jamestown.
