    Black Photographer Incubator Program

    The Annual Black Photographer Incubator Program is a 6-week incubator that guides and nurtures LA-based photographers through a series of workshops and lectures instructed by teaching artists. The program culminates in a print sale that introduces the artist to a network of future employers, art collectors and community members.

    Black Image Center Community Darkroom Network

    BIC Community Darkroom will fill a gap in the landscape of arts education in Los Angeles, and is designed to empower people to tell their own stories. Our collaboration with Las Fotos Project in Boyle Heights will further create ties between Black and Brown creatives in Los Angeles. Funding will go towards building out the BIC darkroom along with creating a shared curriculum and business model between Black Image Center and Las Fotos Project, to ensure that Black and Brown creatives have equitable and accessible resources across LA.
