Photographic workshop for young people, aged 14-16, at the Bank of Cyprus Cultural Foundation.
The European project FOODPRINT: The Mediterranean Diet Revisited (< strong>https://foodprint-project.com) and the Bank of Cyprus Cultural Foundation, invite young people, aged 14-16, to participate in a two-day photography workshop on January 27 and 28 under the guidance of award-winning photographer Myrto Papadopoulou.
The workshop will take place at the Bank of Cyprus Cultural Foundation, starting with a guided tour of the Foodprint photography exhibition, which presents a contemporary portrait of the Mediterranean Diet. Then there will be an introduction to documentary photography and portraiture, and in addition there will be a photographic excursion, in which students will be invited to create a photographic narrative around the idea of food and people. Participants will then present their work within the group, encouraging dialogue, the expression of ideas and feelings in the context of a creative process.
Material from the workshop will be selected to be presented in the context of a collective project that created on the occasion of the FOODPRINT exhibition at the EMST National Museum of Contemporary Art in Athens in autumn 2023.
