We invite young people(16+) living in White City and Wormholt area in west London to be part of a Youth Arts Showcase.

Participants to the project will explore the theme ‘What is like to be a young person in White City and Wormholt’ using documentary photography, including writings and audio to create a series of photographs to be shown in a Photography exhibition.

The project will consist of 6 photography workshop sessions in which participants will develop key documentary photography skills. Each session will progressively guide participants to learn about documentary photography, develop their photo story and produce an exhibition set of photographs, as part of their photo stories. Core elements of the sessions are:

  • What is Documentary Photography?
  • Learn approaches and methods in producing a photo-story, images sequencing versus single image.
  • Explore how to express emotion through photographs through the use of photography techniques.
  • One to one mentoring focusing on development of the work produced
  • Collective appraisal.
  • Editing and curative decisions for the exhibition.

The sessions are Free, however registration is essential. Please book a place HERE

YOUTH PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOPS ON CLIMATE CHANGE

As the world struggles to prevent irreversible climate change and further damage to our environment, we recognise that young people, who are largely inheriting this crisis, are both hugely impacted and empowered to play a pivotal role in restoring our natural habitat.

Photojournalism Hub is inviting young people (16+), to participate in a project on climate change consisting of a series of eight documentary photography workshops. During the workshops, participants will work on researching and creating their own documentary-based photo story on an existing environmental challenge/s and/or inspiring actions they see in the local area.

The outcome of the project will be presented in a series of documentary-based photo stories in a zine. These will be the basis of young people’s recommendations for a meaningful collective reflection and action culminated in the first Hammersmith and Fulham youth symposium on climate change.

Photojournalism Hub is a community interest company that engages in the fight against social injustice and human rights violations through photojournalism and independent journalism. They believe that independent journalism and photojournalism is the key for social justice advocacy and a means for elevating the silenced voices. Photojournalism Hub has established ongoing programmes of online and public-facing events. Crucially, working with and engaging various communities, youths and individuals in photography projects, the Photojournalism Hub provides skills and opportunities as well as raising awareness of injustice and existing unfavourable conditions.
