Newest Americans

September 13 - September 24

with Ashley Gilbertson, Ron Haviv, Ed Kashi, Maciek Nabrdalik
Photoville 
Brooklyn, New York
Sept. 13-17 & 21-24, 2017

Newest Americans chronicles the immigrant experience from the vantage point of the most diverse campus in the United States, Rutgers University-Newark (RU-N), according to U.S. News & World Report. Recognizing Newark as a bellwether for the demographic future of the entire country, this project generates fresh narratives about our emerging majority-minority population and the nation it is transforming.

Newest Americans reaches across media formats: documentary film, photography, fiction and nonfiction essays, podcasting and interactive storytelling. Since 2014, we have produced a digital magazine, mounted gallery and museum exhibits, and hosted numerous public humanities events that engage audiences in in-depth conversations about the challenges and opportunities presented by immigration. We generate both hyper-local stories and documentaries on the wider impact of people connected to the city, making this a project with both Jersey roots and a global reach.

Newest Americans is a collaboration between Talking Eyes Media (an award-winning social documentary production company), VII and Rutgers University-Newark. Professional journalists, media-makers and artists work alongside RU-N faculty and students to create stories that reframe the immigration experience in America.
