A photography camp for Colorado’s indigenous youth

July 5-7, 2018 at the Museum of Boulder

Join us for 3 days of exploration, community, and fun with notable indigenous photographer Josué Rivas (Mexica/Otomi).   https://www.josuerivasfoto.com/

Learn how to tell your visual story through your own unique lens. This workshop is a rare opportunity for tribally enrolled American Indian youth.  Use the camera as a tool to tell your own personal story about our people, community, cultural heritage and history.  

The teachings you receive from Josué Rivas will explore the impacts imagery has made in our consciousness as Indigenous peoples, the paradigm shift in visual storytelling and how you can reclaim your narrative by using simple yet impactful tools.  Mentors will provide guidance throughout the project to help your work and build your skills.

Your images will be showcased around Boulder County in a series of photography exhibits during Indigenous People's Day in October (including in huge outdoor mural images to be displayed throughout town, similar to these: http://www.insideoutproject.net/en

Who should apply? Talented students eager to experience new learning techniques and more. The workshop is free and will be held July 5, 6, and 7 at the new Museum of Boulder downtown.  Cameras will be provided, as well as lunch and transportation to and from the workshop. Join us, and bring your creative spirit and help teach Boulder about our rich cultural community.
