She is the Photographer
Advanced Photo Storytelling Workshop 2024
We are thrilled to announce an Advanced Photo Storytelling Workshop 2024, specifically designed for activists, professionals, and aspiring photographers in the field of photography and photojournalism.
Our workshop exclusively invites aspiring women photographers from all the provinces of Nepal. It provides a unique opportunity for participants to learn and improve their skills as professionals under a guided mentorship to create photo stories of women in Nepal. The program includes a start-up workshop, fieldwork, and an editing workshop. Photo stories will be shown at multiple exhibitions to advocate for women’s rights. Selected participants are expected to commit full-time and should anticipate creating a comprehensive photo project upon the workshop’s completion.
All classes will be conducted in person, allowing the chosen 10 Nepali participants to collaborate with fellow students and mentors from various parts of Nepal. This is a residential workshop.
Date, Venue, Timings, and detailed program schedule will be provided to the selected participants. The workshop will be conducted in primarily Nepali language.
