Open Call for Be The Change in Dumbo (today and tomorrow)

OPEN CALL to participate in “Stop & Think”

Blue Barn Pictures’ Photographer David Castillo is currently working with the local chapter of a global art project, BE THE CHANGE, inspired by Parisian street artist and TED prize winner JR’s INSIDE OUT PROJECT.

The task, as one of the 24+ participating cities around the world, is to take portraits of New Yorkers along with statements of “how they are being the change in the world or their city”.

The Theme for Be The Change NYC is “Stop-and-Think”, a play on the NYPD’s “Stop-and-Frisk” policy. We will ask participants to draw upon their experience with stereotyping and racial profiling to convey the subject matter through their BE THE CHANGE portraits and statements.

If you would like to participate, or just pass by to say hello, Blue Barn Pictures will be shooting right under The Archway in Dumbo. Across from 155 Water Street today, Thursday, July 12th, 2012 from 1pm till 5pm and Friday, July 13th from 10:30am till 5pm.
