Tuesday August 2 @ 6pmET

In 2021, a new mentorship program was developed in New York called the Bridge. This groundbreaking 16-week program for Emerging Photographers and creatives aged 18-26 was designed by ASMP, ASMP NY, and our education partner BKC. This year, the Bridge returns to New York with its next iteration of programs.

On Tuesday, you will have the opportunity to meet the creators and leaders of The Bridge program in a wide-ranging panel moderated by ASMP’s DE&I Consultant Brandyn Campbell.
