Teaching Artist Perspective - Kailah

City Shine. A project that promotes community.

 Every Thursday evening since August 1st City Shine has planned a photo outing at different parks in the Cincinnati area. Last week we visited Bellevue Park and it was there that we had our biggest turn out! Families, couples and friends came together to enjoy community.

 Yes we were there to take photos of the beautiful sunset but we were also there to interact, socialize and learn from each other. I had a wonderful time participating in the community that City Shine was able to create. It was a wonderful experience to create with people who share the common interest of photography with me. 

Yes, CityShine is a photomapping project that captures the beauty of Cincinnati from different perspectives but it is also a project that promotes and creates community. Through taking photos at specified meet ups I was able to meet people in my city and have a good time. People who I would have thought of as strangers are now friendly associate.  I’m just happy I was able to apart of such an awesome experience.
