Description

This is a ZOOM presentation.

NYC Salt, a 501(c)(3) organization, is the premier visual arts program for underserved youth that fosters creative, college, and career pathways.
We are transforming lives—and the creative arts industry of the future—from the inside out.
NYC Salt’s mission is to engage, inspire, and empower youth from low-income, predominantly immigrant communities in New York City to reach their full potential through photography. We achieve this through rigorous, sequential art and technology instruction taught by artists and industry professionals, combined with individualized mentoring, college preparation, career exploration, and job readiness training.
Since our founding in 2008 with eight students, we now train 200 students every year to develop the technical and creative excellence to tell their unique stories—giving their communities, cultures, and identities a voice and an audience.

Here is my bio and I think there will be a coupe students presenting with me.
Founder & Executive Director
Alicia Hansen has worked as a professional photographer for over 20 years. Starting her career at one of the largest metropolitan papers in the country, she has worked for The Atlanta Journal Constitution, The Seattle Times, The Springfield State Journal‐Register, The Roanoke Times and World News, The Athens Banner Herald, The Guardian, and Fortune Magazine. Alicia has a BA in Journalism from the University of Georgia and a Masters Degree in Visual Communication from Syracuse University’s Newhouse School. She taught photography at the undergraduate and graduate levels while at Syracuse, and has worked for world‐renowned National Geographic contract photographer, Joe McNally, as his first assistant and producer. The result of their joint efforts was the first all‐digital story for National Geographic, helping pioneer the way for digital photography to become a new standard for the magazine. Alicia has served editorial and corporate clients such as Sports Illustrated, Health Magazine, Golf Digest, People Magazine, Crossway Publishing, The Cooke Center, Herald Bank, Amway Corporation, Bloomberg News, Tishman Corporation, LPL Financial Services, IBM, Microsoft, Lexar Media, Catherine Malandrino, Mark Burnett and Donald Trump’s show “The Apprentice,” Paste Magazine, and the TV show “My Celebrity Home.” She has participated in the Eddie Adams Workshop for over eight years, first as a student and now as a producer. For the past eight and half years she has grown NYC SALT from a small photo class to a nonprofit organization with a 100% college acceptance rate.
