Archiving Activism: Black Lives Matter Photography Programme

Explore photography and archiving as a tool for social change with a new series of workshops focusing on the Black Lives Matter movement.

Take part in this three-day series of free workshops that will explore photography as a method of storytelling through the Black Lives Matter movement.

Delivered in partnership with Kwame Daniels (Bounce Culture), the programme will help you develop skills in photography as well as exhibition and curatorial design.

How will it work?

  • Take part in a series of creative workshops including photography with Macy Stewart, whose work has been featured in Vogue and LadyGunn magazine.
  • Develop skills in exhibition and curatorial design with National Museums NI curator Anna Liesching and learn how to present and showcase your work for display.
  • Discover how the arts are an important channel to enact change and how global movements can have a local impact.

Sessions will be delivered online via Zoom and Slack - all with the support of the Making the Future team.

The workshops will take place from July 5 - 8th, with sessions at 10.30 - 12.00pm.

This programme is FREE and open to anyone based in Northern Ireland or the border counties.
