"The illiterate of the future will be the person ignorant of the camera as well as of the pen".

 

     László Moholy-Nagy 

Our programs integrate visual literacy with traditional literacy, to offer learners an opportunity to express themselves through both image and the written word. Our fun, participatory, experiential workshops encourage creativity, critical thinking, collaboration, and community building - key elements of an innovation mindset!  

To cultivate this mindset, we supply the digital cameras and portable printers students will need to create a photographic narrative based on personal themes or topics that they are currently exploring in class or in life.

 PHOTO CLUB

In our flagship participatory program, we use photography as a catalyst for self-expression, critical and creative thinking, communication, collaboration, and classroom inclusivity. We explore themes such as identity, family, and community and/or and current topic you are presenting in class. 

Let's go on a photo scavenger hunt, find faces in places, make photo action flipbooks, create friendship triptychs, learn about composition, vantage points, elements of design, scale and perspective, macro photography, and so much more in this photo-activity packed program!

COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIP WORKSHOPS

Are you a community-based organization interested in learning how a PhotoVoice program can help support your mission? We will work closely with you to design and implement a participatory photography program that explores and addresses any theme or issue important to you and your community members. We teach the photographic techniques needed to create compelling images, and we help you curate and mount a community photo exhibit.

Emily Chan, TDSB Teacher

"Diana's photography and writing workshop series with our grade 1-3 and grade 4-6 classes are a perfect example of integrated learning at it's best. Diana taught our students the basic elements of photography, facilitated solid poetry and writing classes, and created a positive and supportive environment for our students to produce a powerful, self-reflective creative arts project. I highly recommend Diana to classroom teachers and community groups looking for a dynamic facilitator who skillfully weaves together literacy and arts with children of all ages."
