A collaboration between VSCO and Access Ventures, VSCO Voices is a grant program that supports creators who use art to give voice to marginalized communities in the United States.
Grant recipients received mentorship and money to accomplish their project, and the results were incredible. From a coming-of-age documentation of kids in the wilderness of Alaska to the hauntingly beautiful short film dealing with love and loss, the projects celebrate our diverse world and its peoples.
Led by Kelly Johnson and Ben Terry, with support from a passionate team, Voices is one of my favorite programs at VSCO.
