Throughout 2017, we are working with our interns to highlight 52 Creatives from the NEPA region. We believe creativity is a broad term that cannot be easily confined within the walls of one simple definition. We want to know what being creative means to you and how you bring that creativity to light.​

Jamie Smith is our 21st #NEPACreative of 2017. Jamie brings creativity to the area through The Social Fabric Collective – a non-profit organization that provides professional photography equipment, education and inspiration to high school students who are as diverse as they are dynamic.

Jamie began his interest in photography in the late 1990’s and wanted to establish a type of program that he wished existed when he was in high school. With his background in teaching, The Social Fabric Collective was formed. This allows students to be exposed to art, photography, field trips, guest speakers, and student exhibitions.
