The movement of Everyday photography projects (@EverydayAfrica, @EverydayBronx, @EverydayAmericanMuslim, and others) has created a worldwide conversation surrounding the role of photography in activism and social conversation. Now Everyday Africa co-founder Peter DiCampo—Town Hall’s Inside/Out Neighborhood Resident for the University District and Ravenna—brings together four other founders of Everyday projects to bring Seattle into the fold of #Everyday cities.
Join Peter and four other Everyday project founders for a technique workshop led by these photography powerhouses, followed by an interactive photowalk through Seattle’s beautiful University District. See Seattle in a new light and elevate your photography skills as you capture moments of truth on the U District streets and document daily life in our city. Then share photos with other participants over light refreshments while Peter and the other founders lead the group with feedback and an exploration of the images captured on the photowalk. Sharpen your photographic skills to help bridge social divides and bring people together, and help tell the story of our city as these phenomenal journalists usher Seattle into this groundbreaking conversation across Everyday worlds.
No fancy cameras are required—cell phone cameras are ideal! Images will be shared via Instagram using the hashtag #EverydaySeattle. Workshops participants should be ready to share images using their Instagram account.
This event is the partner workshop to Peter’s event the previous day at the University Lutheran Church, Reframe: Five Photographers on the Power of the Everyday. Attendance at our Reframe program is highly encouraged but not required for workshop participants.
