Refocus Omaha Photographs Local Communities


February 25th, 2021

Omaha, NE—Refocus Omaha, a project started by members of Leadership Omaha class 43, in partnership with BFF Omaha, invites locals to participate in a city-wide visual storytelling project. It showcases unique perspectives from Omaha’s diverse communities via images posted on the @refocusomaha Instagram page.

Featuring Leadership Omaha Class 43 Member Catharine Mello and BFF Executive Director Alex Jochim

BFF was a natural choice for a partner, given their work organizing First Fridays and other arts events around the city.

There are many examples of diverse communities in Omaha, and not just its neighborhoods. All forms of community are featured in Refocus Omaha.

Submissions for Refocus Omaha are open until mid May. An exhibition of collected photographs is scheduled for June 4. To get involved, find @refocusOmaha on Instagram or go to
