NYC SALT creates opportunities in visual arts and pathways to college and career for under served New York City youth from diverse backgrounds who are dedicated to careers in the arts, by engaging them in a rigorous blend of professional photography instruction, college-preparatory workshops, and career exposure. Their goal is to help students who would not otherwise have these advantages and opportunities. Through their photography classes, NYC Salt offers real-world experience, one-on-one mentorship, exposure to different professional fields, guest speakers, an annual gallery show, ACT prep, and perhaps most importantly, a free college prep program, including the financial aid application process. It has become a family for many of our students and alumni alike.
The deadline for the 2020-2021 NYC Salt Residency Program Application is August 31st.
