Hosted by Eliza Gregory and Gemma Rose-Turnbull, this workshop invites artists and arts educators to explore what happens when the disciplines of photography and social practice merge. For the first half, we will share inspirational projects and personal experiences as a group, in addition to creating a matrix of techniques, resources, and case studies pulled from the leaders’ own research. In the second half of the workshop, we will work in teams to map out potential project structures, role play to test out different mechanisms of exchange, and begin to work out the logistical complexities of particular practices. In the first half, we’ll pool our knowledge and develop a common vocabulary of references and strategies, and in the second half we’ll put that knowledge to use in advancing participants’ own goals. Artists and educators at any stage of thinking about this topic are welcome. (If you’ve never thought about it before but feel curious, that’s fine! If you’ve done a lot of work in this area, that’s great too–we’ll put your knowledge to work.) One of the goals of this workshop is to convene a dialogue that brings the Cincinnati arts community together to share ideas and experiences relating to this topic.
