SEE POTENTIAL: How Photography Can Envision Change
A conversation with Emily Schiffer and Whitney Johnson, The New Yorker Director of Photography
7:30 p.m., The Half King, NY, NY

"Schiffer and Johnson will discuss topics centering on two themes: how projects like SEE POTENTIAL illuminate complicated issues that are close to home; and how photographers can use their images as part of a fresh response to such issues—for instance, reaching out to community groups and unifying partnerships among different stakeholders."

Learn more about Schiffer's project, SEE POTENTIAL—a collaborative community endeavor that aims to transform underutilized spaces in Chicago's South Side into community centers and urban gardens.
