This Saturday is POP YO TRUNK, we will be making Guadalupe st. our gallery. I decided to take this opportunity to introduce my photography project to the public. So I made stuff, and prepared my speech. I will be selling buttons, totes, stickers, fanny packs, and patches. All of which have been silk screened, sewn, pressed by hand by me (and 2 people who I don't know what I would do without, Joe De La Cruz and my husband, JJ Lopez). I would like to thank my awesome and supportive friends who really helped me in attaining the things I needed to make everything. PURO DIY!
So, again, my goal: Raise $5000.00 in order to purchase (2) lap tops and (15) digital cameras (for now). With this equipment in addition to a curriculum I am building I will then be able to take my photography workshop into non-profits, after school programs, museums, etc. Having the necessary equipment and resources means whoever is hosting my workshop will not have to provide me with the tools, I will already have it all. And the effect: Making photography more accessible to the youth of our city....for FREE.
If you are in the area come by POP YO TRUNK and help me reach my goal, please.
