Magnum Photos in partnership with The British Journal of Photography presents NGOs, Social Practice and Advocacy – How to use storytelling for social change, as part of our ongoing professional practice series.
Learn how Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) are using photography and visual storytelling in their work and what they are looking for from a collaboration with a photographer. Discuss developments in critical theory around issues of representation and community engagement, and the ethical considerations of using storytelling as a tool for social change. Discover how to use participatory and social practices, and how to stand out from clichés from some of the best experts in the industry including: Sim Chi Yin (Magnum Nominee), Alexia Singh (Podcast Writer, Producer, Save the Children), Anthony Luvera (Artist, Writer, Educator), Richard Burton, (Photographic Officer, Amnesty International).
This workshop offers:
