COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIP WORKSHOPS

We partner with non-profit and arts-based organizations to design, implement and facilitate participatory photography programs (for children, youth and adults) that complement their mission and outreach initiatives.  Based on the PhotoVoice method, participants are encouraged to express their points of view by capturing aspects of their community they want to share with others. Along the way, they also learn how to create compelling images through the exploration of the technical and creative fundamentals of photography such as perspective, composition, elements of design, and lighting.

Our Community Partnership Workshops helps to give a voice to participants who have limited opportunities to express their views and concerns. Participants learn…

 

  • The basics of photography through participatory, hands-on use of digital cameras, and observation and discussion of selected iconic photographic images of the 20th century

  • How to convey a message in a picture

  • How to write captions for their photos

  • How to use their photographs as a research and advocacy tool

  • How to create awareness with their photos by mounting a community photo exhibit

 

Our Community Partnership Workshops... 

  • Amplify voice of participants, help participants advocate for their interpretation of the world
     

  • Gives cameras to participants so they can document their world (family, community, self)
     

  • Give participants opportunity to take, discuss and exhibit their photos in a community setting
     

  • Increase participants sense of personal and colllective self
     

  • Promote creativity, critical thinking, collaboration and visual and media literacy
