When October 01-03, 2020
Where Online Event

Over the past several months, we have watched the world shift in dramatic and significant ways -  the call to action resonating louder than ever.  What role does the image-maker and photographic educator play in shaping the new normal?  How do we as photographic artists make work during an era of social injustice, global health insecurities, and political discord? Our resolve and determination as artists and educators are being put to the test like never before.
