In collaboration with Foam Amsterdam, Labs School facilitates a series of annual workshops and an exhibition for teenagers (age 15-19 years) from both Red Hook and Amsterdam Noord. Our teachers in Red Hook (Bashira Webb and Joseph Gilmore) create a curriculum together with Foam educators to teach classes simultaneously in two countries. By meeting on Skype and following the same program together, the teens meet peers from beyond their own national borders, learning about the power of photography and about each other. The project culminates in a yearly photo exhibition “Look Across the Water” in Amsterdam, the Netherlands and in Red Hook, Brooklyn.
The next Look Across the Water exhibition is opening on November 21 2017 at Summit Academy Charter School (Brooklyn) and Expocafé ZAMEN (Amsterdam).
