North Light Community Center, 175 Green Lane, will be hosting one of Philadelphia Photo Arts Center’s (PPAC) citywide annual Philly Photo Day Workshops.  On Friday, October 18th from 4:00 to 6:00 pm, PPAC artists will be at North Light to teach photography workshops and lend digital cameras to children (with their parent/s) to photograph our local community. In a follow-up workshop held on Monday, October 21st from 4:00-6:00pm, those same participants will work in collaboration with a teaching artist to integrate their best photographs into a digital mural that will be comprised of multiple images of the neighborhood in a collage, grid, or other design. Our community mural, along with thousands of other images created throughout the City on Philly Photo Day, will be included in a central exhibition from November 14th to December 28th and our locally created mural will be installed on the exterior wall of North Light (Green Lane side) for a minimum of six months.

In keeping with our local theme, Family Focus, children, ages 3 to 10 and their parent/s, who can be available for both workshops, are welcome.  Participation is free but pre-registration is required. If you would like to be a part of Philly Photo Day at North Light, please contact Irene Madrak at 215-483-4800, x102 or imadrak@northlightcommunitycenter.org no later than October 11, 2013.
