SPE - Strategies of Resistance and Effective Action

Sponsored by SPE's Combined Caucuses: Women's Caucus, Multicultural Caucus, LGBTQ Caucus

Friday, March 10 - 5:30PM to 6:30PM
Orlando IV

How can we as photographers and SPE as our professional society proactively empower students and ourselves to counter the rapid growth of racist, misogynistic, anti-LGBTQ, xenophobic, and anti-environment power structures? As educators and image-makers, we each have a critical role in countering these attacks, as well as those threatening the existence of fact, freedom of speech and expression, and a free press.

This special session will integrate panel and dialogue to address these pressing issues, as well as how to provide safe and inclusive spaces that nurture and strengthen voices of dissent and resistance. How will we, and SPE engage both our students and ourselves in the creation of images, photographic projects, and actions that protect and celebrate a diverse, democratic America?

Strategies for Resistance, in support of SPE’s engagement with social justice and in response to the urgency of this time, will amplify specific methods and share our common expertise. We will build on our shared skills, values, and experience as educators and image-makers to address and create specific strategies of resistance and effective action.
