Want to learn how to truly inform the public and change practices and policies?
The Alexia Foundation is proud to offer a one-day seminar entitled “Photography: Agent For Change,” for photographers to learn to use photography to effect change. Covering a story or producing a project and getting the work published or exhibited is great, but much more is possible. This workshop will teach you to go beyond raising awareness.
