Our trails, streets, parks, sidewalks and public parking lots make up our public spaces and are vital to our community wellbeing. Transportation and urban planning are tools the City uses to develop these spaces. Our transportation choices, bicycling, walking, public transit including buses the Railrunner, the BLUE bus and driving are also vital to our community health. The Santa Fe Metropolitan Planning Organization is developing a public art installation of “Santa Fe Street Stories and Local Photography.” We need your help.
Youth, ages 13-18 are invited to submit photos taken in 2020 that capture and describe transportation in Santa Fe as seen and experienced by the young, old, merchants, disabled, tourists and anyone else. This is an especially unique time where COVID-19 restrictions may have altered peoples means of travelling in Santa Fe. Creative images that tell a story or have a message are desired. We invite youth to help tell that story with their photography.
Judging will include MPO staff and professional photographers.
