Women Photographers International Archive (WOPHA), in partnership with Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM), announces today highlights of the 2024 WOPHA Congress—a groundbreaking photography conference, exhibition series, and creative convening, taking place across South Florida. The second edition of the Congress, titled “How Photography Teaches Us to Live Now,” presents the indelible contribution of women and non-binary photographers in contemporary art, and explores the diverse ways we engage with photography in daily life, how we interpret those images, and how we can pioneer new approaches to foster photography education.

Building upon the inclusive practices in photography, research, and cultural production explored in its inaugural edition—which featured dozens of speakers and presenters, hundreds of artists and participants, and millions of global media impressions—this year’s Congress seeks to disrupt the teacher-student hierarchy with a participatory learning environment including photowalks, group portfolio review sessions, exhibitions, workshops, fireside chats, and panel discussions. Artists, educators, worldwide organizations, and photography enthusiasts will join WOPHA and its partners at sites across South Florida, including PAMM, Norton Museum of Art, HistoryMiami Museum, Miami-Dade Public Library System (Main Library), Miami International Airport, Girls’ Club, and many more, with select modules available virtually as well. The events are free and open to all.
