Outreach Program 5th Annual Exhibit

In the past 7 years, CPC Outreach volunteers have shared modified, need-specific photography education, cameras, and friendship with over 50 adults who live in shelters or supported housing. During monthly photo walks, we explore, with cameras, Chicago neighborhoods, parks, the lakefront, industrial sites, and other local destinations. We then critique each other’s work and plan our next outing. This year, our annual exhibit of CPC Outreach photography will be supplemented by work from the participants in Catholic Charities’ After Supper Visions photography program. All prints from both groups will be for sale.
