The Digital Photography Community Project is a peer-led community building initiative utilising digital technology, image making and the creative process to engage with culturally and linguistically diverse young people in the City of Adelaide.
Participants must commit to 5 free workshops once a month from January to May 2024 scheduled for the last Saturday of each month, culminating in a public exhibition for the whole month of June at SAMESH Community Space Hyde Street. Participants will use their own equipment for the project, which may range from a competent smartphone camera to a DSLR or mirrorless camera.
The workshops will provide a fun social environment for creative activities including storyboarding, personal narrative and skills development in digital photography and image making, plus group excursions
Supported by the City of Adelaide through a Community Impact Grant, the purpose of this endeavour is to provide a safe space for LGBTIQA+ people, asylum seekers, refugees, and people living with HIV, to meet regularly and to develop their skills in digital photography and truth telling.
As a community driven art activity, this project will provide participants with the tools to discover and hone their skills in image making and storytelling as they create, reimagine and share their artwork both on and offline, ideally as part of their unfolding life journey.
The project also aims to foster inter-cultural understanding that can lead to more positive cross-cultural dialogue exchange and collaboration.
