Cameras –> Education –> Community –> Connection –> Action!!  Oh ya, and a lot of FUN!

So happy to post the photos from the final day of the first Cameras4Change workshop in San Francisco Xochimilco, a lovely community high in the hills above Mexico City.

This was a large workshop with over 20 participants ranging in age from 6 -72!!  They all amazed us with their enthusiasm, wisdom with the camera and some absolutely beautiful photos.  The workshop took place over 6 days and ended with a public exhibit in the center of the community at the church of San Francisco.  Thank you to all that came and all that helped us from Isla  Urbana, our collaborative partner in Mexico and the community members in San Francisco!  The party started around 11 am with a special theatrical performance by Leo, and ended with sharing the work of the students along with their creative writing about water in their community – “Agua es Vida”.  It was an honor to work with you all.  At the end of the program all participants received all the images that they shot.  This week we will be meeting a new group in the community of Milpa Alta! We will be creating a special gallery of all of the students best work from these workshops, labeled with the community name!  Thanks again to Nikon Canada, Lowepro Bags and Sandisk for helping with the camera equipment, and to John Fluevog Shoes and all of our supporters for getting us here!
