Reclaiming Buffalo Project
Mrs. Triggs, director of the We Care Block Club and None Like You Outreach Program, brought young people to CEPA to specifically learn PhotoShop. They took photos of the abandoned and boarded up houses in their neighborhoods and transformed them in PhotoShop to show us the changes they want made in their community. They also wrote an essay, with help from a Just Buffalo writer that talks about their experience in the class and how they feel about their city.
The next step is to create a large banner with the before and after photos along with the essay, that will show at CEPA and then easily move around the city to different venues.
