2016 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Lauren Vargas will build community through storytelling and the portraits of residents in Hunting Park in order to challenge the mostly negative images portrayed in the mainstream media of North Philadelphia. Lauren will organize a community dinner for neighbors to gather and share personal histories and positive stories about their block, followed by family photo shoots and portrait sessions to capture the spirit and strength of the community. The final product will be a series of portraits in oil paint of the neighbors, including a 140-character story written as a "tweet" by each participant, which will be displayed during a block celebration.
