2018 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Through the use of photography and audio, Ada Trillo will tell the stories of people living in safehouses in the major border towns of Mexico. She intends to document the cruelties and injustices of the failed immigration policy under the current administration and highlight the enormous contributions that immigrants from South and Central America have made to the country. The images will be rendered in print and shown at Centro de Cultura Arte Trabajo y Educación, a family center in Norristown that promotes culture, art, work training and education.
