Event: Saturday, May 6 at Conaway Center, Columbia College Chicago 10am – 5pm
Mission: The Prism Photo Workshop offers education, resources, mentoring, funding, professional development and community to visual journalists from traditionally underrepresented communities including women, people of color, LGBTQ people and people with disabilities. Prism Workshop does this through grants, scholarships, mentoring and a yearly workshop. Prism Workshop believes there should be no barriers to access and have a pay-what-you-can model for attendance.
We believe it is imperative that news organizations – and the journalists who represent them – are credible and diligent and that they reflect our communities accurately and faithfully. We support young photographers from diverse backgrounds to tell the stories of underrepresented people and communities with dignity.
