Workshops

South Hill Primary School

Cyanotype workshop with ‘The Children's Society’ at South Hill Primary School, 2011

Our workshops are designed for schools, youth and community groups, universities, charities, NGO's, commercial companies and government institutions.

Utlising participatory methods, Literacy Through Photography (LTP), creative photography, sensory and visual research, we explore alternative ways of engaging with photography in dynamic and stimulating ways.

Participatory photography is a great method for enabling people to express themselves, visually breaking down social / cultural stereotypes and language barriers. We offer opportunities to communities, companies and other collectives or individuals who have the potential and enthusiasm to benefit from our professional expertise, resources and participatory methods of engagement.

Fotosynthesis facilitators are professional photographers and researchers who actively support and share their professional experiences and create a welcoming environment, and ensure workshops are focused on the needs and aspirations of participants.

“I am particularly impressed by the creative and imaginative strengths 
in all Fotosynthesis employees and trained volunteers. Their artists 
stimulate interest, nurture imaginations and promote the rights of
each individual to have and express their creative voices through
 visual arts. The planning, attention to safe and low risk materials and tool and 
the preparation and follow up are meticulous. The activities have been 
inclusive, relevant and imaginative and reach hard to reach younger
 and older people”
