Agents for Change: Women Behind the Camera – Free Workshop Series

Photographic Center Northwest (PCNW) is thrilled to announce the 2023 Agent for Change workshop series. This year they will offer a series of three free workshops that explore photography as a tool for advancement in areas of social justice, racial equity, disability, environmental justice, visual literacy, storytelling, and cross-cultural communications. Registration is free, and space is limited for these workshops — they ask that you double-check you’re able to attend the session dates prior to enrollment.

Women Behind the Camera:

Over this four-part series, participants will be introduced to contemporary issues facing women in photography today. With guest speakers from two of the leading global organizations on women in photography Anna Fox (Fast Forward: Women in Photography) and Aldeide Delgado (WOPHA), seminars, case studies, lectures, and panel discussions, this workshop will celebrate the inspiring work of women working with photography. You will take a closer look at some of the leading artists who are impacting the art world with their thought-provoking work, as well as challenge antiquated ideals of photography. We will also explore the implications of the patriarchy on women photographers, and critically analyse photographic histories from a global perspective.
