Photography can be a powerful tool for giving voice to the voiceless and shedding light on local concerns from local perspectives. Photovoice combines photography, dialogue, photo exhibits, and social action to address issues people care about. In this course, students will learn how to identify community issues and how to use photography to tell a story about those issues. We will discuss case studies of Photovoice projects from around the world to begin thinking about our communities and possible actions for social change. Students will complete a Photovoice project and critique and discuss each other's projects to fine-tune each photographic story. The class will culminate with a group exhibition of projects.
Note: This class is designed for high school students. The Sally Ride Science Junior Academy courses are designed to inspire young adults to pursue careers in STE[+a]M.
