More information about this READY MADE.


READY MADE: A Visual Conversation about IDENTITY in a Multicultural Society, is a youth photography project where youth ages 15-19  from the Latin american communities and other equity seeking groups. Youth are engaged through photography. This workshop will encourage participants to use photography as  a way of self-expression and allow the opportunity to explore societal power imbalances in relations to identity.

Youth receive an intense 10-hour hands- on photography class using digital cameras; they are invited to explore photography as an Art form and way of self-expression.

Youth participate in a four-hour field trip which is intended for them to integrate the elements of power imbalances and identify in their photographic compositions.
