Professional photojournalists, this is your opportunity to give back to the people of New Orleans by investing time with the young visual journalists of tomorrow.
We are looking for six to eight team leaders. Team leaders will lead a team of about three students in a visual essay on a particular topic. About, 20 young photographers will have the opportunity to work hand-in-hand with some of the photojournalists that told the stories of Hurricane Katrina’s devastation in a one-day workshop.
The workshop is a free and open to students ages 13 to 20.
The Telling Their Stories: The Soul of New Orleans Workshop is designed to promote storytelling of a people and culture in the Crescent City in the years after Hurricane Katrina. The workshop will encourage students to document and reveal the unbroken soul of the city through its people, places and landmarks through still photography and multi-media storytelling.
If you are interested in participating or know someone who would like to participate, please contact Johnny Hanson at 713-703-7708.
