In the Fall of 2016, we started our first year-long domestic workshop in Brooklyn, New York. With the help of our partner Girls for Gender Equity, we created a tailored curriculum for 10 girls & 10 boys at Roy H Mann Junior High School to engage in social justice-based critical thinking. Since the children’s school is locally based to our headquarters, we are able to work with the students on a weekly basis throughout the school year.
The workshop culminated in a field trip to the Sotheby’s photo studio where our kids used professional equipment to take studio portraits of each other.
Stay tuned for a film about our Brooklyn students’ experience with learning & teaching photography and the images they took during the workshop!
