The Power of Photography is an inclusive participatory photography project to enable young people with little or no experience of photography to develop their own artistic practice while building their confidence in a playful way.

What to expect

Using the participants’ own cameras (this includes a smart phone camera), this project aims to help young people to use photography to reach their personal goals. Each session will start with an introduction to the topic, and a review of the previous weeks’ photos. The sessions will be designed to incrementally build skills and confidence. At the end of the 8-week online course, we will have an exhibition at Poplar Union (date dependant on the reopening of the building).

This free course will run from Wednesday 3 February – 23 March at 4pm via Zoom.

This course will be taking place online via Zoom. Please book your ticket by selecting the 3 February and this will give you access to the whole 8 week course. You must book in advance so we can send you the Zoom details prior to each session.
