The Disposable Project stands as a testament to the power of creativity. Actualized through the lens of nine Moshi school children equipped with disposable cameras to capture their environments, TDP highlights the transient yet lasting qualities of a disposable photograph.
In my Project Director position, I solicited funds from departments at Loyola Marymount University to initiate a youth-focused photography education program in Moshi. I cataloged and curated over 2,700 photographs from 100 disposable (single-use) cameras. I planned intensive and timely advertising support for our crowdfunding campaign, successfully generating over $5,500. I built an in-house content production team of 2 videographers and 2 graphic designers. Along with my team, I conceptualized and directed the development of both on- and offline marketing and branding content. Finally, I conceived and implemented a premier photography exhibition and fundraiser in Los Angeles, coordinated all logistics and forged strategic partnerships with several organizations to garner sponsorships, and successfully raised over $1,500.
