Provide a photography workshop for 30 young people of a Buenos Aires shantytown which will enable them to acquire the skills to develop self-confidence and improve their job prospects through art


Currently, ph15 serves 30 underserved young people who live in Villa 15, a shantytown in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Most participants' families came to Buenos Aires from rural areas of Argentina or from Paraguay with the hope of finding work. 30% of participantsAaa parents are unemployed and 40% receive government assistance. The main goal of the project is to integrate the beneficiaries of the program with the rest of the society through visual arts.


Each student attends a free 3-year course, divided as follows: Expression through Photography - Expression & Technique - Digital Photography. Plus organizing national and international exhibitions, fieldtrips, receiving visiting artists, etc.

Long-Term Impact

All participants will learn to use images to communicate with others; gain skills in photography, editing, design; gain self-esteem, self-efficacy, ability to work in groups; increase their chances of finding a job; achieve higher levels of education
