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.
