Photography workshop: Queerness Through the Lens

Date:Sat 22 Jun
Time:2 - 4.30pm
Venue:The Hub
Price:Free (ticketed)

Come along for a chance to digest and critique work, as well as making your own. The workshop will dissect the work of portrait photographers who use their practice to inform how queerness is viewed and perceived within their respective worlds. This workshop will also provide you with the basic tools to capture your own authentic portraits that tell an important story.

About workshop lead: Myah Jeffers is a dramaturg, director and portrait photographer and is currently the New Work Coordinator for Talawa Theatre Company, Literary Associate for the S+K Project, and Resident Photographer & Creative Director for poetry platform, Heaux Noire.

Myah’s work, in both the fields of theatre and photography, is centred on amplifying the voices of Black & Brown people, with a particular focus on queer people of colour.

No fancy camera gear required. Bring your smartphone along, that is enough.
