Creating Narratives of Youth of Color: SoMapagmahal Photography Mentorship Program is organized by Erina C. Alejo, Diana Li, Dara Katrina Del Rosario, Dereck Macario and Irwin Simpelo. Their commitment to community organizing, youth empowerment and the arts as well as their individual experiences with diaspora and place have greatly informed their practice. Previously, they organized together and amongst each other within different spaces such as the Galing Bata Afterschool Program, Kearny Street Workshop and the Asian American Women Artists Association.
