The mission of ZIP MKE is

to represent all corners of the city,

to resist limited perceptions of individuals and communities, and

to repair wounds of division in the city with a comprehensive and authentic exhibition of Milwaukee’s faces, places, and experiences.

We do this

by encouraging residents to submit photos year-round that celebrate their city,

by exploring and documenting the city ourselves, and

by engaging with communities to create relevant and transformative opportunities for self-empowerment and self-representation.
