100cameras Snapshot Project: Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

I have an amazing opportunity to teach photography and storytelling to youth in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. This collaboration between the non-profit 100cameras and CoFondation (French artist JR's non-profit) will directly benefit the youth at Casa Amarela (a community youth center) in Rio. Using the 100cameras curriculum, I will teach over a month at Morro da Providência, and act as a facilitator to foster creativity and learning. I already spent time in the neighborhood shooting photos during a workshop with David Alan Harvey in 2014. The kids in Providência love to learn, and photography is such an awesome bridge to personal growth and helping the community. The 100cameras model gives youth the chance to raise funds through their photography for the community they live in. It is a win-win project. But I won't be able to do this alone: I need your help! 

Would you consider helping with this great cause and sharing the project with your friends? Thanks for any support that you can give! A share on Facebook, a repost on Instagram or Instagram Stories etc. Follow along on Instagram @scottmbennett and also go directly to the indiegogo page to donate funds toward the project and read more about the details. I am a volunteer and want to inspire youth through photography. I will be in Rio starting March 8 for about 5 weeks. If you are in town, feel free to contact me so you can visit the class!

Thanks! Muito obrigado!
