Welcome to Powderhorn365!
Through the lenses of volunteer photographers, Powderhorn365 tells the daily stories of the Powderhorn Park neighborhood: making people and places visible, documenting history and celebrating life. Powderhorn365 produces a visual, community-written narrative through photo postings, photobooks and exhibits.
Powderhorn365 provides value to the neighborhood by contributing to public art, inspiring people and connecting the patchwork of the Powderhorn Park neighborhood. Powderhorn365 benefits photographers by spurring creative growth, continuing education, breaking isolation and developing their personal experience of the community. The program serves the neighborhood by creating a platform for the community members to draft their own shared narrative. It serves local youth by documenting where they grew up and providing reasons to stay or come back to the neighborhood. Local businesses and organizations gain visibility through the program and it encourages people to cross cultural barriers.
Powderhorn365 began January 1, 2009, thanks to Amy Wurdock and a group of photographers. The project continued with a new group each year. We are now a program of Powderhorn Park Neighborhood Association, and that partnership has given us the support we need to sustain this project. Our gratitude to PPNA for helping us explore new and exciting ways to celebrate the neighborhood through photography, including photo-wrapped utility boxes along the streets of Powderhorn and neighboring communities.

Look back at the prior years to get the full spectrum of talent and perspective from 2009 to date. If you want to see the photo full screen, click on it to open.
Daily photographers for 2018 include David Pierini, Ben Wells, Kimani Beard, Stephanie Paxton, Jenn Fisher, and Edith Carlson. We look forward to viewing what this group sees in Powderhorn.
