28 zip codes, 1 city.


Who are we?

ZIP MKE is a grassroots community engagement project created in October 2016 that uses photography to

celebrate all 28 ZIP Codes in the city,  

engage & connect communities, and

expand social perspectives by diminishing preconceived assumptions.

We embrace the ubiquity of the camera and its potential to capture subjects and stories (whether human, natural, or architectural) in powerful ways. Through our online gallery, public exhibitions, neighborhood walks, public conversations, and community engagement events, ZIP MKE is envisioning the Milwaukee we all need to see: the faces, places, and events that make all 28 ZIP Codes unique, beautiful, and diverse.
