Parenting and care giving through the COVID-19 Pandemic has meant a lot of changes in households across New York City. Moms, dads and caregivers of all sorts have become teachers, kids have become coworkers, and a new level of creativity and patience has been brought to endless hours of family time. For too many, the toll of it all has been immense.
To honor the extraordinary efforts of those raising human beings through a pandemic, the Dumbo Improvement District, in partnership with Photoville, is putting New Yorkers' Pandemic Parenting moments up in lights.
Dumbo-based Photoville is a non-profit organization that works to promote a wider understanding and increased access to the art of photography for all.
Photoville approaches its mission of reaching a wide, diverse audience by producing a free photo festival, activating public spaces, amplifying visual storytellers and connecting artists to a wider worldwide audience.
Devoted to cultivating strategic partnerships and creative collaborations, Photoville works closely with photo festivals, city agencies, nonprofit organizations, and educators to create exhibitions and public art opportunities that showcase compelling, exceptional photography.
