Photography as an Agent for Change Workshop Series 2023
Elizabeth Ransom was selected as one of the three people to run a workshop for the Photographic Center Northwest (PCNW) 2023 Agent for Change workshop series. This year PCNW will offer a series of three free workshops that explore photography as a tool for advancement in areas of social justice, racial equity, disability, environmental justice, visual literacy, storytelling, and cross-cultural communications. Ransom will host the SOLD OUT workshop "Women Behind the Camera". Over this four-part series, participants will be introduced to contemporary issues facing women in photography today. With guest speakers from two of the leading global organizations on women in photography, seminars, case studies, lectures, and panel discussions, this workshop will celebrate the inspiring work of women working with photography. We will take a closer look at some of the leading artists who are impacting the art world with their thought-provoking work, as well as challenge antiquated ideals of photography. We will also explore the implications of the patriarchy on women photographers, and critically analyze photographic histories from a global perspective.
The Women Behind the Camera workshop series will run online July 6, 13 & 27, 2023 Thursdays 6-8pm and July 22, 2023 Saturday 10am-12pm. Click here to sign up to the waiting list.
