Presentation of photographic course in Italy

On the 27 th of February 2020 the association Cospe, with the partnership of the association Il Prisma, organized the presentation of the photographic course  “Corso di fotografia” as part of the European BRIDGES Programme.

The idea of the course arose during the co-design meeting held in Scandicci on 26th of November and has been developed and refined through several following meetings. During the participatory meeting, held at the “Circolo ARCI Vingone” on 27th February, the event has been launched with the aim to start up  interactions between the local community and residents with migrant background.

The participants were able to learn about the details of the photography course, meeting the photography teacher and exchanging experiences in front of the aperitif offered by the organizers.

On the 1st March 2020, started the  photography course.

The first lesson gathered 12 people, very different in age, origin and they had the opportunity to learn some basics of the theory and also try to take some photos with the camera provided by the associations.

In addition to theory lessons, participants will have the opportunity to go out around the city  to practice what they have learned.

At the end of the course there will be a photographic exhibition with the best shots of the participants as a closing event of the programme.
